Request a Ballot
You can request an absentee ballot for yourself by filling out an application. You can request an application by calling (315) 798-5765 or emailing BoardofElections@ocgov.net. You can also apply:
- Online using the Absentee Ballot Application Portal: https://absenteeballot.elections.ny.gov/
- If you are visually impaired and require a ballot with accessible features, you may apply using the online Accessible Absentee Ballot Application portal: https://absenteeballot.elections.ny.gov/home/accessible
- By downloading a PDF application
- Applying in person at the Board of Elections
If you cannot pick up your ballot, you have the right to designate someone to pick it up for you. Only that person designated on your application may pick up and deliver your ballot.
If you are permanently ill or disabled, you have the right to receive an absentee ballot for each election permanently. Simply file an application indicating your reason as permanent illness or physical disability.
You will then automatically receive an absentee ballot for every election until your registration is canceled.
