Every election is important, and this year may be more important than most. If you expect to be out of town on November 8th, get an absentee ballot now to vote for the next US President, your Congressman or Congresswoman, and other offices.
I voted with an absentee ballot for a recent election, since I would be out of town on Election Day.
Getting an absentee ballot took a few minutes. Download the form from the NYC Board of Elections website, fill it out, mail it or take it to your nearest NYC Board of Elections office.
You can opt to have the absentee ballot mailed to you, or pick it up at a NYC Board of Elections office. Boor download from, 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. If you think you will be out of town for the all-important presidential election on Nov. 8th, get an absentee ballot now.
Every election is an important one. Don’t miss out of having your say on helping choose the next mayor of the most important city on the planet. Besides, if you don’t vote, you don’t have the right to complain about who is elected.
