New York Voter Toolkit

Voting can be confusing! Through the New York Voter Toolkit, iMentor's goal is to make a complex process, easy to understand with tools for mentors to talk to your mentees about the voting process. This page is a one-stop-shop for everything voting related.

Save the date: Our Presidential Election is Tuesday, November 3rd, 2020!

Important Deadlines: Action Required

  • Friday, October 9: New York State Voter Registration Form Postmark Deadline
  • Friday, October 16: Absentee/Mail-In Voting Application Postmark Deadline
  • Tuesday, October 27: Absentee/Mail-In Voting Ballot Deadline (if you plan on mailing it to the NYC Board of Elections)

3 Key Points:

  1. If you receive an Absentee/Mail-in Voting Ballot, please check that the name and address is correct. For more information: check out this Gothamist story.
    • If you receive a Ballot with a different person’s name or address please call:
       1-866-VOTE-NYC. 
  2. There is an option to fill out your Absentee/Mail-In Voting Ballot and then drop it off at your polling location on November 3, if you don’t want to send it in the mail. 
  3. The post office is running more slowly, so, if at all possible, please send any materials in BEFORE the deadlines.
