Early Voting In New York: What You Need To Know

Early voting is underway in New York State, which means you can finally cast your ballot for president and other local races. Unfortunately, Lower Manhattan doesn’t have an early voting location this year. The nearest one for most addresses in Lower Manhattan is the Church of St. Anthony of Padua (155 Sullivan Street); voters who reside on the northeast part of the neighborhood can go to J.H.S. 56 Corlears School (220 Henry Street) on the Lower East Side.

Early voting locations are not the same as your usual polling place. But they will be open longer in the run up to the election to allow more New Yorkers time to vote, and more chances to socially distance at polling sites — which should give you plenty of time to make the trek. 

Early voting runs October 24 through November 1. Regular polling places will still be open on Election Day (November 3). 

Early voting hours: 

October 24: 10a -4p

October 26: 7a-3p
