Friday is the deadline to register to vote in the Nov. 7 general election.
The Erie County and Niagara County boards of elections have registration forms available for download on their websites, and the forms also are available at town and city halls, post offices and some public libraries. They must be postmarked by Friday to be valid for this year's election.
Citizens who haven't voted before need to register in order to take part in the election, and those who have moved since the last time they voted must re-register.
Also, voters who wish to change their party enrollment for 2018 must do so by Friday, by submitting a new registration form.
