You probably don’t need a reminder that today is election day, but here are some helpful tips for New York voters.
• Polls are open 6 AM–9 PM. If you’re in line by 9 PM, you’re allowed to vote.
• If you’ve voted in New York before, you don’t need to provide ID to vote in person.
• If you’re voting for the first time in New York, submitted your registration by mail, and didn’t provide a copy of your New York driver’s license, state ID card, or a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or government document that shows your name and address when you registered, you may need to show one of these documents when you vote in person on Election Day.
• To find your polling location, just google “where do I vote”.
To see what will be on your ballot, Ballotpedia, a nonprofit encyclopedia written by a staff of researchers and writers, contains a wealth of information and maintains a sample ballot lookup.
