Frequently Asked Questions

✤ WHAT IS EARLY VOTING?

You can now vote in person during a nine-day period before the election, beginning Saturday, March 14 and continuing through Sunday, March 22. This includes weekend and evening times to allow for voting flexibility.

✤ DO I NEED A REASON TO VOTE EARLY?
No, you do not need a reason to vote early. Unlike absentee voting, you do not need to apply.
✤ DO I NEED TO BE REGISTERED TO VOTE EARLY?

You must be registered in advance to vote in New York State, whether you vote early or on Election Day.

You can download a registration form on any New York Board of Elections website. You can also register online through the New York State DMV if you have a driver’s license or non-driver ID.

✤ WHERE DO I GO TO VOTE EARLY?
Your Early Voting Poll Site and your Election Day Poll Site may not be the same. Different counties have different early voting rules. Check VoteEarlyNY.org to find your Early Voting Poll Site.
✤ IF MY COUNTY HAS MORE THAN ONE EARLY VOTING POLL SITE, CAN I GO TO ANY OF THEM?

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.

✤ WHEN WILL MY VOTE BE COUNTED IF I VOTE EARLY?

Early Voting ballots will be counted on Election Day.

✤ CAN I CHANGE MY VOTE IF I VOTE EARLY?
No.
✤ CAN I VOTE EARLY AND ON ELECTION DAY?
No, you may vote only once per election.
✤ WHAT IF I MOVED OR AM MOVING DURING THE EARLY VOTING PERIOD?
A new law passed in 2019 requires the Board of Elections to transfer a voter’s registration automatically if the voter moves within the state and fills out a change of address form at the USPS. As this is a new law, we strongly recommend that you update your registration with the Board of Elections. If your name is not in the poll book at your new address, you can vote on an affidavit ballot.
✤ WHAT IF MY NAME IS NOT IN THE POLL BOOK?
Whether you vote early or on Election Day, there is a chance that your name may not be in the paper or electronic poll book. If that happens, make sure you are at the correct poll site for your address, and ask for an affidavit ballot to fill out. After Election Day, the Board of Elections will confirm your registration. If you are a qualified voter, your affidavit ballot will be counted. You might want to call your Board of Elections to confirm that it was.
