Your Local Election HQ

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Early in-person voting in New York State will run from October 24th to November 1st.

Voters in Monroe County can go to any one of twelve polling locations, regardless of where they live within the county.

Poll workers use “poll pads” – electronic poll books – to check workers in.

“Hopefully we will have people that will come out for it,” said Diane Gibson, supervisor of training and recruitment for the Board of Elections, “because we are prepared for it.”

Additionally, voters can drop off absentee ballots at polling locations.

“Any site, there will be a designated box or envelope that will be for absentee ballots,” said Gibson. “You can also drop them off at the Board of Elections downtown at 39 West Main Street”
