nullIf you haven't registered to vote yet, time is running out. Mail-in registration forms must be postmarked no later than midnight on Friday.

In order to vote in this years election, officials for the board of elections say registrations always spike in presidential election years. They hope that the number of big elections locally this year will help people get out to vote.

Board of Elections Commissioner Peter Quinn said, "The presidential year brings out a lot of the organizations and we always hope that everybody not only through an organization, but on their own, now with media and the amount of activity that goes on between debates and their mailboxes are full with either national or local materials on the races we hope people take the initiative."

If you haven't registered yet and want to do so, you can visit this website to print off a form to mail-in by the end of Friday night.

Some town offices, like Irondequoit, will be open on Saturday for those last minute registrations.
