Rule Changes

I want to make sure all your readers know about rule changes regarding absentee ballots in Suffolk County.

From the Board of Elections website: “Important change in law about absentee voting. Effective January 1, 2022, an eligible voter may not cast a ballot on a machine at a poll site after the board sends an absentee ballot to such voter following a timely request. Regardless of whether the absentee ballot was actually delivered by the Postal Service or was sent back to the board, the voter will not be able to vote on a machine at a poll site. The voter may still complete an affidavit ballot at the poll site.”
