The Primary Election races for U.S. Congress and NY State Senate, originally scheduled for Tuesday, June 28, 2022, have been postponed to Tuesday, August 23, 2022, as the result of court rulings on the redistricting litigation. The Court is working on a new Political Calendar to reflect this second primary date. Updates will appear below as new information becomes available.
The following dates pertain to the Primary Election to be held in June 2022, which will consist of statewide offices, NY State Assembly, judicial delegates and alternates, and certain local offices.
Friday, June 3, 2022: Last day to register to vote in person or to postmark your voter registration form (registration form must be received by June 8). Check your voter registration status at the NYS Voter Registration Database Search.
Absentee Ballot Information
All New York State voters may still apply to vote by absentee ballot using the temporary illness clause, which now includes being unable to appear due to risk of contracting or spreading a communicable disease like COVID-19.
Monday, June 13, 2022: Last day to postmark an application for absentee ballot by mail or submit an application via email, fax, or electronically through the New York State Absentee Ballot Application Portal. See the Westchester Board of Elections website for additional details.
Monday, June 27, 2022: Last day to apply in person at the Westchester Board of Elections for an absentee ballot.
Tuesday, June 28, 2022: Last day to postmark a completed absentee ballot (must be received by July 5) or to submit an absentee ballot in person to the Westchester Board of Elections or at any polling site throughout Westchester County by the close of the polls.
Please note the following changes to the absentee ballot procedures:
New York State voters are no longer permitted to cast a ballot on a voting machine if they have already been issued an absentee ballot for that election. Voters who have already been issued an absentee ballot may cast an affidavit ballot in person, to be counted only if the voter’s absentee ballot has not been received. If a voter requests a second absentee ballot, any previously issued absentee ballot that is returned by the voter will be set aside. If both ballots are received before the return deadline, the ballot with the later postmark date will be accepted unless the first ballot has already been opened. If a voter submits more than one timely absentee ballot and casts an affidavit ballot, the last received ballot, either submitted in person during the election or by mail within the absentee return deadline, will be canvassed.
In Person Voting
Saturday, June 18, 2022 through Sunday, June 26, 2022: Early voting at any of the 23 early primary voting polling locations and times in Westchester County.
Tuesday, June 28, 2022 (Primary Election Day): In person voting only at your assigned polling location.
