What is Early Voting?
For the first time in New York State, voters can vote in-person before Election Day at one or more voting sites in their county.
Who can vote Early?
All registered voters can vote early.
How will I vote during early voting?
Voting during early voting is the same as voting on Election Day. When you get to the early voting center, you will check in to vote, receive your ballot and vote as any other election.
There will be instructions available at the early voting center to familiarize you with the ballot. There will also be a notice to voters and voter's bill of rights. You may ask an election inspector to explain hot to vote, or if you need any assistance.
If you vote during the early voting period, you are not eligible to vote on Election Day.
When will early voting results be posted?
Early voting votes will be canvassed and reported after 9pm on the night of the General Election.
Can I still vote by absentee ballot?
Yes, if you are out of your home county, or if you are permanently or temporarily disabled, ill or are the primary care giver for one or more people who are ill or physically disabled, or a resident of a Veterans Hospital, or detained in jail awaiting Grand Jury action or incarcerated for an offense other than a felony you may apply for an absentee ballot.
