I'm a 2nd Homeowner in Delaware County, may I vote here?

Glad you asked! In many cases, YES! You can! Check out this website for details: votewhereitcounts.org.  

What's the Last Day I Can Register? What about Absentee Ballots?

That depends on the election calendar and the election you wish to vote in. Federal and State elections have different due dates. The election calendar can change, so it's smart to verify dates with the Delaware County Board of Elections (BOE), or ask questions in general.

    I am an 86 year old man, a lifelong Democrat, living in the town of Davenport in Delaware county. My polling place was moved in 2010 to Davenport Center. It is much too far
    for me to walk to. I would very much like to vote next week. Are there any plans to take seniors without transportation to the polls?
