The objective of the Board of Elections is to insure that all qualified voters have the opportunity to exercise his/her right to vote in all elections held in Rensselaer County.

The Rensselaer County Board of Elections is comprised of two commissioners, each representing one of the two major political parties, and a full time staff of equal representation. The New York State Election Law mandates the Board’s responsibility of elections and related requirements. The Rensselaer County Board of Elections is responsible for all Federal, State, City and Town elections in Rensselaer County. Under present law, village and school district elections as well as fire, water, and other special district elections, do not fall under the jurisdiction of the Board of Elections. We try hard to provide the most accurate information we are able.

Voter registration data in various forms and media is available to both the general public and candidates interested in running for an elected office. Interested parties should call the Board of Elections for further information and prices.
