Absentee Voting

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, voters may fill out an absentee ballot application and check “temporary illness or physical disability” as the reason they are requesting an absentee ballot.

The New York State Board of Elections has established an online portal for eligible voters to request an absentee ballot online. Visit https://absenteeballot.elections.ny.gov/ to submit your request today!

Absentee Applications must be submitted online or postmarked by October 27, 2020.
