Early Voting Starts October 23 and Includes Propositions on Voting in NY
People are heading to the polls more than a week before Election Day.
It may be an off year, but there are a number of political races to be decided and propositions, including state-wide proposals concerning how and when voting is done in New York.
You can see the complete New York ballot propositions including proposals to freeze the number of state senators, redistricting, voter registration deadline adjustments and a constitutional amendment establishing the right to clean air and water at www.elections.ny.gov.
Early voting this year is not expected to be as popular as it was last year in the height of pandemic safety concerns and a hotly debated presidential contest. Those factors resulted in long lines and waits even at local polls. This year, the turnout is not expected to be as strong for the early voting that begins October 23.
Polls will be open at the Broome County Public Library, the Oakdale Mall, George F. Johnson Memorial Library in Endicott and the Taste NY building at Cornell Cooperative Extension across from SUNY Broome in the Town of Dickinson.
Voting October 23 and Sunday, October 24 is noon to 5 p.m., Monday, October 25 and Tuesday, October 26 from noon to 8 p.m., October 27 to 29 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and October 30 and 31 from noon to 5 p.m.
Election Day is Tuesday, November 2.
