Letter from Michael Parietti of Preserve Ramapo:
We want to call your attention to an important new deadline that is nearly upon us.
Due to changes enacted this past fall to the political calendar, the last day to change your party affiliation for the coming election year is tomorrow Thursday, February 13th or, this Friday Feb. 14th if you deliver the registration form in person to the Rockland County BOE.
For anyone looking to join a party that will promote preserve minded, inclusive, good government priorities, we advocate a switch to Serve America, aka the SAM Party. This is the brand-new political party that occupies Row H on the ballot. We all used it collectively and effectively to unite our vote and deliver a potent electoral message in the 2019 election. We now need supporters to register with the party to maintain our momentum and keep the ballot line viable.
The SAM party platform is located squarely in the middle of the political spectrum with a moderate, Results over Rhetoric philosophy. If you are interested in learning more about the SAM Party you can visit their website at www.joinsamny.org.
Switching your party registration is quick and easy. You can do it online on the DMV website at the link below.
Click on the blue button halfway down the page that says: “Register to vote or update your voter registration information” Follow the instructions and fill in the required information. When you get to the screen for party affiliation, click the button for the SAM Party. If you do it online on the DMV website you must complete the process by tomorrow Thursday Feb. 13th at midnight.
You can also make the switch by filling out a paper voter register form and turning it in to the Board of Elections in New City by this Friday, Feb. 14th. Check your email for the voter registration form–it is attached to the email sent by Preserve Ramapo this evening.
If you have any questions or need someone to bring you a registration form or pick up your completed form for delivery to the Rockland County BOE please contact Mike Parietti at firstname.lastname@example.org.
