 League has advocated for the expansion of absentee voting options for the November election.  Our efforts were successful and now all New Yorkers have three ways to vote in the general election.
 

1.  Vote by Absentee Ballot:

  • Mail or return your absentee ballot by November 3
  • There will be dropboxes at all polling sites - early voting sites and all sites on Nov. 3
  • Placing your ballot in a dropbox is recommended.  No waiting in line.

Military and overseas ballots can be tracked ballot at https://nysballot.elections.ny.gov/TrackMyBallot/Search

 2.  Vote Early:

  • Voters can vote early between Oct. 24 and Nov. 1;
  • In Oneida County, the 3 early voting sites will be open Saturday and Sunday 10am - 3pm
  • Voters can go to any early voting poll site in their county to vote early;
  • Early voting at South Rome Senior Center, MVCC Jorgensen Center & the New Hartford Town Building (formerly Gander Mountain)

 3.  Vote on Election Day November 3

 In New York State, voters are allowed to submit an absentee ballot and then decide to vote in person instead during early voting or on November 3.  Absentee ballots signatures are compared to poll book signatures from early voting and Election Day. Voters who are determined to have voted in person will have their absentee ballot disqualified.
