Vote Early, Please Vote!
Your dates, locations, and times – it all starts on October 24

New Yorkers can vote early for the November 3, 2020 general election.

In January 2019, NYS joined many other states and passed legislation empowering voters to vote early, that is, before the official election day (this year on November 3rd). Last year, many Southampton Town voters took advantage of early voting opportunities. There is only one site available to us in Southampton Town proper, but, if you can get to other locations (see all area locations below and here) you can ask for a Southampton Town specific ballot. This is important because Southampton Town has an important Town Justice race; our candidate is Karen Sartain. Fred Thiele, our successful and hardworking Assemblyman is also on the ballot. And, of course, we look forward to voting for the Biden/Harris ticket and Nancy Goroff for U.S. Congress.

Early voting starts on October 24 and runs until November 1, 2020.

New York voters can vote before Election Day. The early voting period runs from Saturday, October 24, 2020 to Sunday, November 1, 2020, but dates and hours may vary based on where you live. You may vote at any of the 12 polling sites, for early voting only.

What to bring

  • If you’ve voted in New York before, you don’t need to provide ID to vote.
  • If you’re a first-time voter who registered by mail and didn’t provide a copy of your ID with your registration, you may need to show ID to vote. Acceptable forms include: a current and valid photo ID; or a copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document that shows your name and address.
  • Voters without ID: If you are unable to provide ID, you will be able to vote an affidavit ballot.
