If you will not be able to make it to the voting booth on Election Day, you can apply for an absentee ballot through the Putnam County Board of Elections. This is a two-step process, so the sooner you apply to vote absentee, the better!!

Also, this year it is possible for the first time for New York State voters to participate in Early Voting.
