Getting an absentee ballot for the upcoming elections is easier than you think. If you are expecting to be out of town on Tuesday, November 4th, get your absentee ballot now to vote for the next governor of New York State, your Congressman, and other important state and federal offices..
I voted with an absentee ballot last year since I was out of town on Election Day, and it was easy peasy.
Getting an absentee ballot took a few minutes on the phone to request one from the NYC Board of Elections, a couple of days to wait for the form to arrive in my mailbox, and a couple of minutes to fill out and put back in the mail – in the postage paid envelope provided. You can choose to have the actual absentee ballot be mailed to you, or to pick it up in person at the Board of Elections office in your home borough.
Here’s the website for the NYC Board of Elections, with addresses and phone numbers by borough.
Every election is an important one. Don’t miss out of having your say on who represents you in Albany and Washington. Besides, if you don’t vote, you don’t have the right to complain about who is elected.
