ABSENTEE BALLOT 

If you can’t or don’t wish to vote in person, you can vote with an absentee ballot. If you are concerned about exposure to COVID-19, this could be a good option.

Absentee Ballot Application

First, you need to apply for an absentee ballot. You can pick up an application at your local Board of Elections, or use the NYS BOE Absentee Ballot Portal to apply online: absenteeballot.elections.ny.gov

On the application, select “temporary illness or physical disability” as the reason for requesting the absentee ballot.

If you have any problems with your application, call or email your local board of elections. If you’re in NYC call 1-866-VOTE-NYC (1-866-868-3692).

Voting by Absentee Ballot

After applying for it, you will receive your ballot by mail. Once you complete it, it can either be mailed or personally delivered to the Board of Elections. When it is received by them, that’s your vote.
