Now is crunch time to make sure you are registered, apply for a vote-by-mail ballot if that’s your preference and cast your ballot whether in person (early voting is best), by mail or other forms of delivery.  Do not wait another minute to find out your deadlines by going to

In New York, if you choose to vote-by-mail (you must apply NOW at then you can return your mail-in ballot as follows:

  1. By mail (do it as soon as you get the ballot and fill it out);
  2. At drop boxes in various locations;
  3. At your County Board of Elections in person:
  4. At early voting sites from October 24, 2020 – November 1, 2020;
  5. At your polling site on Election Day.

Of course, you still have the option to vote in person at early voting sites from October 24, 2020 to November 1, 2020 as well as on Election Day November 3, 2020 at your neighborhood polling site.

Whichever way you choose to vote, have a plan and do it Early, Early, Early.
