Election Day is Tuesday, November 3rd!
In New York, you may vote by mail by requesting an absentee ballot. Risk of contracting COVID-19 is a valid reason for requesting one. Deadline to request absentee ballot is Tuesday, Oct 27th!
You can request an absentee ballot on-line, in person or by mail. You can download and mail the paper application in English or Spanish.
