    — Go to the Board of Elections at 39 West Main Street in Rochester
    — Call the Board of Elections and ask them to mail you a form. Their number is (585)753-1550
  2. Fill out the form and return it by mail or in person. Be sure to complete it legibly!
  3. If you have an account with the DMV, you can register online via their website.

After you submit your registation form, you should receive a mailing from the Board of Elections telling you where your voting place is. If you do not receive anything from them, your registration has probably not gone through and you should try again.
