Thank you for visiting the Tompkins County Board of Elections Web site. Our office is dedicated to ensuring that all eligible residents have the opportunity to register and vote. We are committed to keeping you aware of changes to the Election Law and how those changes affect voting in Tompkins County. Summer Office hours are Monday - Friday, 8:00 am to 4:30 pm.
Special Voter Database Available
To help candidates, researchers, etc., we can provide copies of the voter registration database on disk for a nominal charge. For a little bit more, we have a special disk available with a program that allows the user to easily create their own custom lists and labels, or do special look ups based on various criteria (election districts, affiliation, voter history, etc.) Call our office for more info, or see brochure.
