Early Voting

For the first time ever, New York will have early voting! This means that voters have multiple days before Election Day that they can vote. Early voting centers will be open from October 26th – November 3rdLearn about early voting here.

Your early voting site and hours are different than your Election Day polling place. Nassau County voters can vote at ANY of the 15 early voting centers in Nassau County.  View Nassau County’s early voting sites and hours here.


Election Day

After early voting ends on November 3rd, New York will have its Election Day on November 5th. Polls will be open from 6am-9pm. You will need to vote at your assigned polling place, which you can look up here.

Voting Absentee

If you are going to be away during the election or you are unable to get to your polling location, you can vote using an absentee ballot. An absentee ballot is just like a regular ballot you would use in polling booth, except it is mailed to you prior to Election Day so you can vote.

To get an absentee ballot, fill out an application and mail it in to the board of elections by October 29th or have someone deliver your application in-person to the board of elections by November 4th.

View the absentee ballot application here.

If you mail in your application, your ballot will be mailed to you. If you send someone to apply for your absentee ballot in-person, they can pick up your ballot immediately and bring it to you to complete.
