This year, voting begins in February with two special elections in New York! If you are a resident of the 77th Assembly District (Bronx County) or the 3rd Congressional District (Nassau and Queens Counties), there will be a special election held on February 13, 2024.
Early Voting will run from February 3 through February 11, 2024.
The deadline to apply for an absentee ballot is February 12, and it must be returned either in person by February 13 or received by mail by February 20 (must be postmarked by February 13).
Why vote early? By choosing to vote early, you will give yourself more options to exercise your vote on a day and time that is convenient for you. You will also benefit from avoiding long lines and ensuring that no last-minute issues prevent you from registering your vote.
In New York, voting early is just like voting on Election Day. Early voters scan their completed ballot just after privately marking it. Early voting results are counted, tabulated, and included in the election night (unofficial) totals.
In New York State, voters may visit ANY of the Early Voting Centers in the county where they reside, except in New York City, where voters are assigned by address to ONE early voting site.
