Registration deadlines are looming for state residents who intend to vote Nov. 4.
Elections include governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, comptroller, 213 seats in the state Legislature, many judgeships, congressional seats and local contests.
Ballot propositions would change the legislative redistricting process, authorize legislators to read electronic bills instead of printed bills, and authorize $2 billion borrowing for computers in schools.
Mail-in registration forms must be postmarked by midnight Friday, and received by no later than Oct. 15. The form can be found at state and federal offices and downloaded from http://www.elections.ny.gov.
