There are 3 ways you can vote this year:
You can vote by mail. All New York residents may vote by absentee ballot at https://absenteeballot.elections.ny.gov . The deadline to request an absentee ballot is October 24th, and you can fill it out and mail it back before the end of business on Election Day, November 8th, so that it is POST MARKED BY ELECTION DAY. Absentee ballots may also be dropped off at any poll site during voting hours.
You can vote early in person. The Early Voting period for the General Election will be October 29th - November 6th. You may vote at ANY early voting location in the county you reside.
For early voting locations throughout New York State go to: https://www.voteearlyny.org and click the county you live in. You will be provided with dates, times, and locations of early polling sites as well as a link for directions to early voting sites.
And of course, you can vote on Election Day at your regular polling location on Election Day, Tuesday, November 8th.
There is 1 Proposition on the back of the ballot this year. It is known as the Environmental Bond Act and proponents say it will help protect safe drinking water. CWA does not have a recommendation on how to vote.
