November 3rd is right around the corner. With the pandemic still in effect, you might be researching what options are available to you in voting this year.
If you’re interested in using an absentee ballot, the last day to request one is today, October 27th. The ballot needs to be postmarked no later than November 3rd, according to the NYS Board of Elections, but it is recommended to submit it as soon as possible. Voting by mail is a great option if you or someone you know is at high-risk for COVID, or may be quarantined during the election. You may also choose to drop your ballot off at an early voting site.
