Hempstead Village officials, in partnership with the Nassau County Board of Elections, will hold a voter registration drive at Village Hall Saturday ahead of the Nov. 6 presidential election.

The registration drive will be in the Village Hall Courtroom, on 99 Nichols Ct., from 1 to 9 p.m. To register to vote, attendees should bring a driver’s license or have the last four digits of their Social Security number.

“I cannot overstate the importance of voting,” Mayor Wayne J. Hall Sr. said in a statement. “It is your chance to have your voice heard and to ensure that your candidate, whether Democrat or Republican, has a chance to be elected. The presidential election happens once every four years, so make sure you register and exercise your right to vote.”

The deadline for the public to mail registration cards in time for the presidential election is Friday, but the New York State Board of Elections has made exceptions for registration drives that are staffed by the local county board of elections, Nassau County elections officials said.

Anyone who is honorably discharged from the military or becomes a naturalized citizen after Friday can register in person at the board of elections until Oct. 26, according to the state board of elections.

For more information, call the Nassau County Board of Elections at 516-571-2411 or the mayor's office at 516-489-3400, ext. 202.
