Expanded Applications for the November 3, 2020 General Election Only.
The State Legislature passed a bill allowing for expanded application submissions and Governor Cuomo signed it into law on June 7, 2020. For this election only, the application may be submitted via email or fax. As always, the application may be submitted via regular mail. Drop in applications are also accepted. Visitors to the Board are asked to wear a mask and follow our social distancing directives. The signature requirements have been relaxed for the November 3, 2020 General Election only. You may submit the application electronically, with an electronic signature.
You may also request an Absentee Ballot by sending a letter or email. The letter must be received no later than seven days before the election. The letter must contain the following information: your name and date of birth, the address where you are registered, an address where the ballot is to be sent, and the reason for the request. The deadline to apply by letter/email is October 24, 2020.
The letter may be sent via mail, email or fax. The email is VoterInfo@co.rockland.ny.us and or fax is 845-638-5196.
The letter request is valid for the November 3, 2020 General Election only. All future elections will require an absentee application. Please note: Unless you are applying to become a Permanent Absentee Voter due to illness or disability, Absentee applications are valid for one calendar year only.
