ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Early voting in New York starts Saturday, October 29, and runs for nine days through November 6th.

Monroe County has 14 early voting locations and ASL assistance at some locations. Hours are 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, and are 11 a.m. – 9 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday.

“Any eligible registered voter can go to any of them,” said Democrat Election Commissioner Jackie Ortiz. “If you are used to going on election day, the setup is exactly the same. So what you would expect at a regular polling site is the exact same thing at any one of these early voting locations.”

You can find out more, as well as look up your Election Day, November 8th, voting place at the county Board of Elections website.

And a note on absentee voting this year: if you request an absentee ballot, that’s how you have to vote.

Officials also say if a voter would like to go to a polling location during Early Voting or their specific site on Election Day, they will only be allowed to vote by Affidavit. 

“If you choose by requesting an absentee ballot, that is the lane you choose to vote, so if you request an absentee ballot, you have to vote absentee,” said Republican Election Commissioner Lisa Nicolay.
