Your Voice Your Vote

Absentee ballots are central to our voting process this year because of COVID-19. Many of our members (you!) will be applying to receive them. Unfortunately, the U.S. Postal Service is no longer as reliable a courier as it used to be, which spurred lawmakers to devise measures to make sure that everyone will have timely access to cast their vote. As a result of legislation signed into law yesterday, voters in New York State can apply for absentee ballots RIGHT NOW.

The three measures are:

  • Absentee ballot applications can be submitted to the Board of Elections immediately;
  • Accepted reasons for requesting an absentee ballot now include risk or fear of illness including COVID-19;
  • All absentee ballots postmarked on or before Election Day, or received by the Board of Elections without a postmark on the day after the election will be counted. Ballots with a postmark on or before Election Day will be counted if received by November 10.

Voting is what makes us a democracy. Apply for your absentee ballot NOW, so you can vote in the November election. Go to to download the form, fill it out, and email it or mail it to the NYC Board of Elections.
