Residents that are not registered to vote can register with the Westchester County Board of Elections.
Here is some important information on the March 19 election and registering to vote provided by the Scarsdale Town Clerk's Office:
You may pick up a mail-in registration form at Village Hall, or you may go directly to the Westchester County Board of Election, 25 Quarropas Street, White Plains.

March 12 is the last day for the Village Clerk to receive an application for an absentee ballot which is to be mailed to a qualified voter; however, applications made in person can be accepted until Monday, March 18, 2013.
