New Yorkers now have 3 ways to vote:
#VoteByMail (request your ballot now!)
#VoteEarly (Sat. October 24th - Sun. November 1st)!
#Vote on Election Day (11/3)
New York voters can also vote before Election Day. The early voting period runs from Saturday, October 24, 2020 to Sunday, November 1, 2020, but dates and hours may vary based on where you live.
What to bring?
- If you've voted in New York before, you don't need to provide ID to vote.
- If you're a first-time voter who registered by mail, and didn't provide a copy of your ID with your registration, you may need to show ID to vote. Acceptable forms include: a current and valid photo ID; or a copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document that shows your name and address.
- Voters without ID: If you are unable to provide ID, you will be able to vote an affidavit ballot.
WHY Should I Vote Early?
CONVENIENT VOTING TIMES. With two weekends and five weekdays to vote early including several evening hours, casting a ballot in New York has never been more convenient.
Whether you’re a parent balancing work and childcare, a busy student maintaining several extracurriculars between classes, or just trying to find a quieter time to visit the polls, New Yorkers no longer have to sacrifice the right to vote when life gets in the way.
MORE TIME MEANS LESS STRESS. Avoid crowded public spaces, delays, or inclement weather and last-minute scheduling that can hinder your ability to vote on Election Day.
Storms; Illness; Traffic. Unexpected delays and disruptions. With one Election Day, any of these hurdles can jeopardize access to the polls, but none of them should prevent participation in our democracy. An election period of several days that includes evenings and weekends better distributes systemic pressure on administrators and alleviates the impact of unpredictable events that can suppress or manipulate turnout. Early voters concerned about navigating crowds or long lines are likely to avoid them altogether.
BETTER OPTIONS. Where you live doesn’t need to dictate where you cast your vote! All counties outside New York City now offer at least one countywide early voting site that any resident voter may visit. Find out when and where to vote early.
Vote near work, near school, near childcare, near home or while running errands. Convenient access to voting makes it easier for busy New Yorkers to exercise their civil rights. Vote on your schedule!
KNOW YOUR RIGHTS!
In 2019, New York began offering an in-person Early Voting period of at least sixty hours over nine days ahead of all State and Federal Primaries, Run-Off Primaries, Special and General Elections, so New Yorkers have reasonable and convenient opportunities to participate in our democracy (Chapter 6 of the 2019 NYS Laws).
