Vote Early

All New Yorkers can vote early 

Vote early in-person October 24th-November 1st.

Your early voting site may be different from your Election Day poll site, so make sure to check before you go. Find your Early Voting poll site here.

Do I need to sign up to vote early?
Nope! Early voting is just like Election Day, but with more flexibility. Just find your early voting site, show up, and vote!

If I requested an absentee ballot, can I still vote in person?
Yes! You do not need to bring your absentee ballot with you, and you can vote with a regular ballot.

Can I drop off my absentee ballot at my early voting site?
You can drop off your completed absentee ballot at ANY poll site. There will be ballot boxes at the front desk of every site, and you do not need to wait on line. You can drop off a ballot for someone else, such as an elderly family member or neighbor. No postage needed.

How are Early Voting sites preparing for the coronavirus?
The Board of Elections has prepared extensively to keep all poll sites safe. Masks and social distancing are required, surfaces will be regularly cleaned with disinfectant, hand sanitizer will be available for all, and poll workers will work behind plexiglass.

What type of ballots will be used at Early Voting sites?
The same ballots used on Election Day.

When will early votes be counted?
Early votes will be counted when polls close on Election Day.

I heard that Madison Square Garden and Barclays Center are Early Voting sites. Can I vote there?
Only if they are your assigned poll sites.
