How to Vote Absentee

Dear Neighbor, 

NYS is making applying for an absentee voting application easier for the June 23rd primaries due to COVID-19.

Now you will receive the application in the mail.

HERE’S HOW ABSENTEE VOTING NOW WORKS

1)    You will receive an absentee voting application in the mail with a pre-paid envelope.

2)   Fill it out in blue or black ink.

3)   Select the box for “Temporary illness or physical disability.”

4)   Make sure to fill in all 8 boxes and sign and date at the bottom.

5)    Mail ASAP, must be postmarked no later than June 16th.
