Absentee ballots

Registered voters who are unable to vote in person can request an absentee application by calling 518-793-9617, ext. 1.

On April 26, Governor Andrew Cuomo signed legislation that will allow voters who are concerned about voting in person due to COVID-19 to vote by absentee ballot for the 2021-22 school budget vote and board of education election.

This legislation states that potential contraction of the COVID-19 virus will be considered an “illness” for the purpose of requesting and receiving an absentee ballot for the May 18 vote; therefore, eligible voters are entitled to receive an absentee ballot for this reason.
