The 2020 General Election held in November is to elect the President of the United States, as well as congressional and assembly races, depending on the district you reside in. There might also be additional local town or county races.

Polls open at 6 AM and close at 9 PM on election day, so no excuses if you have not yet voted! Some things to keep in mind for 2020: Masks are required, there will be designated spots to stand in line that are separated by six feet, and there might be designated entry and exit doors to keep traffic flowing in one direction. The number of people allowed into the voting area at one time might also be restricted, and voter turn out has been higher than average thus far, so expect the lines to be longer than normal, and prepare accordingly.

Not sure where your polling place is? You can look up your voter registration information and polling place on the New York State Board of Elections website.
