For those of you who are searching in New York, there is a free e-book available: "List of Enrolled Voters: Borough of the Bronx ( it also contains information on Queens voters). It includes an alphabetical list names, addresses and party affiliations. I just found my great uncle on Hoe Ave., Bronx! The information is divided into electoral districts.
There is a search box, but if the name is a common one, such as my gr.grandfather's who was Morris Cohen, you will get the first name, last name, both names, and street name (ie. Morris Av.) if it is a person's name.
It is a Google Book at:
