Early voting information for New York

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Early voting started across New York on June 12 and will continue until June 20. Primary Day is June 22.

It’s too late for New York voters to change their party affiliations in time to vote in the primaries, but there are important dates for absentee voting. The first of those important dates is Tuesday.

Requests for an absentee ballot by mail must be postmarked by June 15. It’s also the last day to submit a request by email or fax. In-person applications, however, will be accepted at local Boards of Elections until June 21.

While anyone is eligible to vote early, voters must meet certain criteria to qualify for absentee voting. New Yorkers can take advantage of absentee voting if they are:

  • Not physically located in their registered county on Primary Day
  • Experiencing a temporary or permanent illness or disability, including being unable to vote in person because of the risk of getting or spreading COVID
  • Primary caregivers of the ill or physically disabled who can’t vote in person
  • Resident or patients of a veterans hospital
  • Detained while waiting for grand jury action
  • Imprisoned post-conviction for an offense other than a felony
