It depends on your county. Check VoteEarlyNY.org to find out if you you must vote at your assigned Early Voting Poll Site, or you can vote at any countywide voting center.
✤ WHAT CAN I EXPECT AT MY POLL SITE?
The process for voting early and on Election Day will be similar to how you have voted before, except many counties will be using electronic poll books (tablets) instead of paper registration books to check in voters. Make sure that you sign your signature legibly using a stylus or pen when you check in, like you are signing a legal document. Your poll site may use iPads and ballot printers to modernize and make the process faster for voters.
