Where can I vote early?

While some of these locations are the same as they were for the last round of Early Voting, others have changed.  For example, the Mount Kisco early voting location (also serving Bedford residents) has moved to the Mt Kisco Memorial Complex in Leonard Park.

How will I vote during early voting?

Voting during early voting is the same as voting on Election Day. When you get to the early voting center, you will check in to vote, receive your ballot and vote as any other election.

There will be instructions available at the early voting centers to familiarize you with the ballot. There will also be a notice to voter and bill of rights. You may ask an election inspector to explain how to vote, or if you need any assistance.

If you vote during the early voting period, you are not eligible to vote on Election Day.

When will early voting results be posted?

Early voting votes will be canvassed and reported after 9 pm on Tuesday, June 23, 2020.

Can I still vote by absentee ballot?

Yes, traditionally, if you are out of your home county, or if you live in New York City, are outside of the five boroughs, or if you are permanently or temporarily disabled, ill or are the primary care giver for one or more people who are ill or physically disabled, or a resident of a Veterans Hospital, or detained in jail awaiting Grand Jury action or incarcerated for an offense other than a felony you may apply for an absentee ballot.  Due to the pandemic, the Governor has additionally issued an Executive Order allowing all registered voters concerned about exposure to the virus to apply for an absentee ballot for the June Primary by choosing “temporary illness” on the request form. You should have received an application for an absentee ballot in the mail. If not, you can find one here. Absentee ballot requests must be received by June 16 and can be sent via postal mail or by email to boe-westabsentee@westchestergov.com. Once you receive your ballot, complete it and return it inside the two provided envelopes. The ballots must be postmarked on or before June 23rd to be counted.

Can I still vote in person on the June 23rd Primary day?

Yes. However, due to the pandemic, your polling location may be different from your usual voting location. We will be back in touch once that information is finalized.
