Important Voter Information from The League of Women Voters Scarsdale

LWVSVoteThe League of Women Voters of Scarsdale is a volunteer nonpartisan political organization that promotes political responsibility through informed and active participation of citizens in government. To help with this mission, the League has outlined voting information so that all eligible voters stay current on voting reforms and are able to exercise the right to vote.

National Voter Registration Day

September 24th is National Voter Registration Day. Join the LWVS and volunteer to help register local students and provide important voter information to them. Training will be on site. For more information and to volunteer contact Joan Alexander of the LWVNR at royjoanalex@yahoo.com

Early Voting Comes to New York

This fall, New Yorkers will have their first opportunity to vote prior to the general election. Early voting will take place for nine days before the general election from Saturday, October 26th to Sunday, November 3rd at the Eastchester Public Library, for residents of Eastchester and Scarsdale. Residents of Greenburgh/Edgemont can vote at Dobbs Ferry Village Hall or Greenburgh Town Hall. The hours vary by date and the details can be found at the Voter Information tab on the League of Women Voters Scarsdale website at www.LWVS.org.

Polling and Voter Information

If you do not choose to vote early, the general election will be held on Tuesday, November 5th and voting will take place at your regular polling site from 6 am – 9 pm. To find your polling location, and confirm your registration, there is a helpful online look up service at: https://voterlookup.elections.ny.gov/.

Absentee Ballot Information

For those who are unable to vote during the early voting period or the general election, applications for an absentee ballot are available on the LWVS website at www.LWVS.org. Applications for an absentee ballot submitted by mail must be postmarked by October 29th and, if delivered in person to the Board of Elections, can be dropped off until November 4th. The Absentee Ballot itself must be postmarked no later than November 4th, or delivered in person to the Board of Elections on or before close of Polls on Election Day, November 5th.

How Do I Change my Political Party Affiliation?

Another important date to note is October 11th, which is the deadline to enroll in or change a political party. In order to vote in the 2020 Presidential Primary, or any future primaries, you must be registered to that political party. New York State allows voters to change or enroll in a political party once a year. The deadline to make this change is October 11th. Information on how to make this change is also available on the Voter Information tab at the www.LWVS.org. Voters seeking political party enrollment or change should use the voter registration form.

The League of Women Voters of New York State has prepared a detailed brochure explaining the new voting reforms and deadlines. Copies of this brochure will be available at the Scarsdale Library Loft and at various shops around Scarsdale. If an individual or community organization would like brochures, please contact: LWVSVoterService@gmail.com

In addition, if you have any questions regarding voting or changes to the voting laws, please contact LWVS, voter service at: LWVSVoterService@gmail.com

Remember, Democracy is not a spectator sport. Get out and Vote!
