Voting in The Upcoming Election


Date: Tuesday August 25, 2020


 

The upcoming elections are going to be incredibly important as we vote for President, Federal and State representatives. It’s going to be essential to make sure your voice is heard and it’s easier and safer than ever to cast your vote.

There are a few ways to cast your vote in the upcoming election:
  • Absentee Voting or Mail-in Voting: You can now request your absentee ballot online by visiting nycabsentee.com/ (if you live in New York City) or absenteeballot.elections.ny.gov/. On the form, select the box for "Temporary Illness." Applications can be submitted as soon as today!

  • After your application is received, you will then be sent an Absentee Ballot to cast your vote. To cast your vote, simply complete the ballot, including signing the affidavit on the envelope that is included, and mail it back. We recommend returning your Absentee Ballot by mid-October, but the official deadline to return it is Election Day. You can also drop off your completed ballot at the office of your local County Board of Elections. 

  • Early Voting is just like voting on Election Day, except it’s held on an earlier dates where lines will probably be shorter and there will be less people. The early voting period runs from Saturday, October 24, 2020 to Sunday, November 1, 2020, but dates and hours may vary based on where you live.
