How do I vote by absentee ballot in New York?

You can fill out an application to register to vote by absentee ballot in New York, which are available at county boards of election or can be printed off online from the New York State Board of Elections. Once you have completed the application, you must mail it to the board of elections no later than seven days before the election, or personally deliver it to the board of elections at least one day prior to the election. You also can request an absentee ballot in writing between 30 and seven days prior to the election, by sending a letter to the board of elections, which includes the address where you are registered, the address where the ballot should be sent, the reason for your request, and your signature. You will receive an absentee ballot and registration form by mail; you must complete both the ballot and the form and return them by mail. You also can designate another person in your absentee ballot application to pick up and deliver an absentee ballot to you personally.
