NEW YORK (WKBW) — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has signed an executive order, extending the party registration enrollment period until Tuesday, February 16th.

This change will allow Boards of Election to have more time to process voter-requested changes.

"The right to vote is one of the sacred pillars of our democracy, and as we continue to fight the war on COVID, we can't put democracy on hold," Governor Cuomo said. "Today we are extending the period for voters to change their party enrollment until Tuesday, February 16 to help break down more barriers to the ballot box and help ensure everyone has a chance to exercise this fundamental right."
