What If I’m Not Permitted to Vote?

If you are not on the poll-list, ask the inspector to verify that you are at the proper table for your address. If you believe that you are eligible, you are entitled to vote. You can obtain a court order or complete an affidavit ballot. Please review the Voters Bill of Rights for further instruction.  At any time you can also call the main Board of Elections number at (845)334-5470 where staff can access the main voter registration system and research the case.

Affidavit ballots will be reviewed after the election by the Board of Elections. Your vote will be counted if you are indeed eligible to vote and are at the correct poll site. If not, you will receive a notice that you are not eligible, along with a registration application for future elections.
