WHITE PLAINS, NY — Ready to vote? You will have to wait a little while longer in Westchester before you can cast your ballot, but the mechanisms that allow everyone to vote are at least in motion.
You may already apply for an absentee ballot in New York. You may use the possibility of illness from the coronavirus as an excuse to vote by mail in the Nov. 3 election.
Here are deadlines and more information about voting.
On Monday, the online portal through which you may electronically request an absentee ballot became live. Read more about that here.
If you want to vote in person Nov. 3, the polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Due to the pandemic, polling locations have not yet been finalized. You may not be able to vote at your normal polling site.
Early voting is another option, and that starts Saturday, Oct. 24 and continues through Sunday, Nov. 1.
Any Westchester County registered voter is eligible to cast an early voting ballot. Registered voters will be able to vote at any of the 17 designated early voting locations in the county.
The county's election inspectors will be using electronic poll books and ballot-on-demand systems to facilitate early voting.

Saturday, Oct. 24 from noon until 5 p.m.
