August 20, 2020
As we prepare for the upcoming 2020 election, it is critical we protect the most fundamental cornerstone of our democracy—the right to vote. Today, I signed legislation that ensures every registered New Yorker has options on how to vote in November in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The legislation signed into law today also takes steps to ensure that every vote is counted. Starting today, all registered voters can request an absentee ballot if they are concerned about COVID.
All Boards of Elections in New York State must count: All ballots postmarked on or before Election Day (November 3rd) and received within seven days after Election Day. All ballots without a postmark received on November 4th (the day after Election Day). These measures are critical to a full and fair election at one of the most important moments in our nation’s history. We are removing barriers to democracy and will make it easier for all New Yorkers to exercise their right to vote this November. You can vote early in-person, you can vote on Election Day or you can vote using an absentee ballot. Whatever you do, don’t miss your chance to make your voice heard.
