The Board of Elections is a bipartisan office comprised of two appointed Commissioners representing the state’s major political parties, and equal party representation in all facets of the Board.

Primary Elections take place to determine the candidates to be voted on in the General Election.  The winners of the General Election will take these offices starting in January.

You can complete an Accessible version of the New York State Voter Registration Form on-line by clicking on the link below, typing the necessary information and selecting the appropriate boxes.

New York State ensures that voters who are visually impaired or otherwise disabled are still able to vote and can vote independently. If you have such disability and wish to vote in person, you may vote independently using the Ballot Marking Device (BMD) attached to the voting machine. Each poll site will have at least one BMD available for use.

If you are visually impaired or otherwise have a disability such that your disability requires you to use a special accessible absentee ballot that can be read by a screen reader, you have two accessible options to request such a ballot on this page, either using the Accessible Electronic Ballot Application or Application Portal.
