Voting By Mail in New York State
New York State has launched an online website where all registered voters can obtain an absentee ballot for the November 2020 elections. We are encouraging all seniors to take advantage of this opportunity while we are in the midst of a pandemic. Voting by mail is simply the safest way to vote. And with a recent change to NYS law - you don't have to have a medical reason to request a mail in ballot. You still need a reason but you as you can see below you can state a "temporary" reason due to concern about the potential of contracting COVID-19. You can click on the photo below and be taken directly to NYS new site to request a mail in ballot be sent to you.
