Dear neighbor, 

It is absolutely vital that we are able to safely exercise our most fundamental democratic right to vote in the November election, and have the assurance that our votes will be counted. As always, feel free to contact me with questions about any of the information shared below. You can email me or call my Middletown office at (845) 344-3311 or my Liberty office at (845) 292-0215. Another great way to stay informed is by following me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

All my best,



Senator Jen Metzger
New York State Senate, District 42




Look up your voter registration status online 

If you recently moved, and you are registered to vote anywhere in New York, you can vote at your new address thanks to a new law! At the voting site -- either early voting or on election day, see below -- tell the election workers you moved and ask for an affidavit ballot. This is a special ballot that also acts as a voter registration address change. 

The deadline to request an absentee ballot by mail has passed. You can still request an absentee ballot in person at your county Board of Elections until November 2. Even if you requested an absentee ballot, you can choose to vote in person instead.

If you have an absentee ballot, return it now, in person if possible. You can return the ballot in person to your county board of elections.

The ballot must be postmarked or handed in by election day, November 3.

You can track the status of your absentee ballot if you vote in Orange County or Ulster County.

Early voting in New York ended on Sunday, November 1.  There is no voting on Monday, November 2. Election day is Tuesday, November 3.

Election day is Tuesday, November 3, from 6:00 am to 9:00 pm. You can vote in person even if you requested an absentee ballot. You must vote at your designated polling location.
