ABOUT Voting By Mail


  • To Vote By Mail: By October 27th, 2020 you must request a ballot online, or by phone, mail, email or fax from your local Board of Elections.

  • When applying due to COVID-19, select "Temporary illness or physical disability" as the reason. This includes the potential for spreading or contracting COVID-19 illness.

  • Ballots must be returned prior to the close of polls on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2020.

  • Completed ballots must be sealed in ballot envelopes which are signed and dated as instructed.

  • Ballots may be returned either: 1) By mail (must be postmarked by Election Day); or 2) By hand-delivery to any Early Voting or Election Day polling place, or to the Board of Elections.

  • Even if you have requested, received, or returned a mail ballot, you can still vote in-person early or on Election Day. Only the in-person vote will be counted.
