It's Almost Time to Vote--Know Where To Go

By now most New Yorkers have received a fold out pamphlet about voting for Election Day in the mail from the Board of Elections. These pamphlets offer a “fast pass” for those who plan to vote at their polling site on Tuesday, November 3 as well as location information. There is also information about early voting locations and how to request an absentee ballot and send it in. Remember that your absentee ballot must be postmarked by Tuesday, October 27.

This election season every vote matters. In case you did not receive this information via mail, click here to find out your early voting polling site. Early voting takes place from Saturday, October 24 to Sunday, November 1. The website is being updated regularly and you should be able to add the times and dates to your calendar for your polling site. For most of Lincoln Square, the David Rubenstein Atrium is your early voting site, so for some residents your early voting location may be more convenient than your election day location. Election Day voting will take place on Tuesday, November 3 from 6:00am to 9:00pm. Click here to find your Election Day polling site. You should check where your polling site is just before you plan to vote in case anything changes. And, if you want to skip the lines, you can always drop your absentee ballot off at drop boxes located at early voting poll sites. 

There will also be a free webinar hosted on Thursday, October 15 at 6:00pm by AARP about how to vote safely during COVID-19. The webinar will discuss safety measures, absentee ballots, accomodations for Seniors, and more. Click here to sign up for the webinar.

Common Cause is working to ensure election protection, mobilizing thousands of volunteers to help voters cast their vote without obstruction, confusion or intimidation. Visit voting.nyc for more information about registration, polling, sites, and more.
