Help pick NY's "I Voted" sticker

ALBANY -- New Yorkers can pick the new design of the “I Voted” sticker for this year's election. But act quick: The deadline is 5 p.m. Friday.

To honor the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in New York, the state has come up with three new “I Voted”  sticker designs that each feature the 100-year anniversary of women voting in the state.

The sticker design that receives the most votes by Friday's deadline will be passed out to New Yorkers who vote in the general election Nov. 7 as a way to commemorate the woman’s suffrage movement in New York.

“I hope you’ll join me by checking out these great designs and helping us pick the sticker that millions of New Yorkers will wear proudly after casting their vote on November 7,” said Women’s Suffrage Commission Chair Kathy Hochul in a statement.

The state of New York granted women the right to vote in 1917. That was three years before the ratification of the 19th amendment, which gave women across the country the right to vote.

If you want to vote in this year's election, the last day to register is Oct 6.
