Early Voting To Begin

Early voting in New York begins on Saturday, Oct. 24 and runs through Sunday, Nov. 1, with 12 polling sites open all eight days in Suffolk County.

Voters registered in Suffolk County can vote at any of the county’s early voting locations — a ballot for your home district will be printed on demand at the polling place.

Absentee ballots may also be delivered to election officials at early voting sites, and at all 338 Election Day polling places to be open Nov. 3 in Suffolk. If voting on Election Day, you must vote in your usual polling place, which you can look up here.

The League of Women Voters’ vote411.org has sample ballots for every voting district nationwide—if you type in your address it will show you what your ballot will look like so you can prepare before going to the polls.
