Important info for New Yorkers.
Under the new program as outlined in the attached Powerpoint presentation, persons with a driver’s license or non-driver’s ID seeking to register, or to update their address or party enrollment information, can do so:
- Online, through DMV’s “MyDMV” Web site https://my.dmv.ny.gov. MyDMV requires users to create a secure online account that is validated through the verification of personal information, such as date of birth, social security number, address, and license document number. Applicants must have a valid New York State license or identification card to qualify, which are issued after a rigorous, in-person identity proofing process at a DMV office. More than 700,000 New Yorkers currently have a MyDMV account and that number is growing daily.
- New computerized electronic data entry (or VeriFone) devices at each DMV location. In every DMV office, new electronic terminals will allow registrants to apply to register to vote or update their registration information themselves electronically without completing any paper forms. These transactions will be overseen by DMV representatives and are subject to the same security standards as the current system. The devices are also equipped to handle credit card transactions for DMV business.
