UPDATED EARLY VOTING NEWS!
 NYS Early Voting - October 26 through November 3
General Election Day: Tuesday, November 5

For the first time, New Yorkers can vote early in the fall election. Early voting allows you to vote in person at your assigned Westchester County early voting polling site between Saturday, October 26 and Sunday, November 3.

Please note: Your early voting site may not be the same as the site you would typically go to on Election Day. Read on for details.

Who? Any registered voter can vote early - you do not need to have a reason or excuse. The registration deadline for early voting is the same as for the general election: October 11.

How? You do not need any special identification to vote early. The early voting ballot is identical to the one used on the general election day (Tuesday, November 5). If you choose to vote early, you cannot vote again to change your vote. See your ballot at Vote411.

Where? The League has received many questions about where to vote early. The Westchester County Board of Elections has indicated that each voter will be assigned to one of 17 designated early voting sites. The Board of Elections has indicated that voters will receive a postcard identifying their voting location. You can also look up your designated early voting site based on where you live. The list of sites can be found here. Except if you live in Greenburgh or Yonkers...

What if I live in Greenburgh or Yonkers? To make it easier to vote early in these heavily populated areas, the Board of Elections has divided registered voters into two locations in each area. Greenburgh residents can look up their assigned site (designated by voting district) here. Yonkers residents can look up their assigned site (by voting district) here. If you don't know the number of your voting district, visit Vote 411 to find it. Too confusing? You can also call the Westchester Board of Elections at (914) 995-5700 to ask for help identifying your correct site.

When? Early voting will take place Saturday, October 26 through Sunday, November 3. Hours will vary by day.

What if I don't want to vote early? A fan of that chilly November weather? No problem! If you choose to vote on the general election day - Tuesday, November 5 - you will go to your standard (non-early voting) assigned polling site. Check Vote411 to find your designated site.

What if I won't be around at all? Early voting does not change the absentee voting process or eligibility requirements (click here for absentee voting information).

How do I learn about candidates?  The Westchester County League has the "2019 Voters Guide" ready for you here. Or visit Vote 411.

Click here for more early voting information from the League of Women Voters of New York State. And also keep an eye on the Board of Elections website in case this information changes closer to the start of early voting. Please share this information -  news everyone can use!
