How I do vote if I am on active duty in the military, but registered to vote in New York?

You can fill out a special application to register and vote by absentee ballot in New York, no matter where or for how long you are stationed, so long as your designated “home of record” is New York. This application is filed with the board of elections in the county of your “home of record”. One application remains valid for both your registration and absentee ballot for two federal elections. You can obtain a copy of this application from the Voting Assistance Officer on your military base, or online.
