  • Request your ballot online here for the Bronx and here for Westchester. 

  • Call or visit your county Board of Elections to request an absentee application

You can return a completed absentee by mail, by drop-off at your county of elections or at poll site (both early voting & election day sites). If you’re voting by mail, your absentee ballot must be postmarked by June 25th. We recommend filling it out and mailing it as soon as you receive it! 
 

Filling out your absentee ballot:

Make sure to carefully follow all directions on the ballot to avoid invalidating your vote. Remember: 

  • bubble in the circles next to the candidates for which you’re voting

  • place the ballot inside of the smaller envelope

  • sign and date the outside of that envelope and seal it

  • place it in the larger envelope and seal before mailing or returning it.
