Everything you need to know about voting on June 23rd
Given all the changes happening in the world, you could be forgiven for not knowing how exactly the primary will play out on Tuesday, June 23rd. That’s why we’ve put together this handy guide to answer all your questions about voting during the pandemic.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the June 23rd primary:
1. You can still vote in-person even if you didn’t receive your absentee ballot. With four days until the election, many New Yorkers still haven’t gotten their absentee ballots. But that doesn’t mean you can’t vote – if your ballot hasn’t arrived, you can vote early through Sunday or go to your poll site on June 23rd. Find your poll site and see who’s on your ballot here. (And of course remember to wear a mask, social-distance, and wash your hands.)
2. Early voting will continue through Sunday, June 21st. You can find your early voting poll site here. There will be no early voting on Monday, June 22nd. But…
3. You can pick up an in-person absentee ballot at your County Board of Elections through Monday, June 22nd (this is also the last date to send your absentee ballot). You can find out where your county board is here.
4. Check your mail to make sure your poll site won’t be closed. Most poll sites should be open but some will close due to the COVID-19 crisis. If your poll site closes, you should receive a letter in the mail.
5. If you already voted absentee and regret voting for a certain candidate,you can vote in person and override your absentee vote. If you voted in person, the BOE will not open the envelope that contains your absentee ballot.
6. Make sure to check if the candidates on your ballot have pledged to #FixNYDemocracy. Sorry, we couldn’t help plugging that.
