Brooklynites will be voting for mayor, public advocate, borough president, district attorney and a number of City Council members in the Nov. 7 general election, along with deciding issues like whether or not there should be a convention to revise the state Constitution.

If you’re not yet registered to vote, however, you’ll have to act fast. The deadline for registering for the Nov. 7 general election is Friday, Oct. 13th.

You can register online (if you have a driver’s license or non-driver ID card), download the form and register by mail or drop off your application at your County Board of Elections.

Visit to register online or download the form.

For a voting guide, a poll site locator and other election information, visit the Campaign Finance Board’s website at .

You must be 18 years old by the end of this year to register and not be in prison or on parole for a felony conviction. But you can be homeless. If so, the Campaign Finance Board advises, “Fill out a voter registration form and write a location where you can be found, such as ‘Bench on Central Park on 86th Street,’ as the address where you live.
