NOV 3RD — WE'RE ALMOST THERE

How can we help you vote? 

Because you absolutely must VOTE!

The enthusiasm is indeed astounding! We have over 200 volunteers from all parts of the county and beyond helping to get us all to the polls in 2020! 
Need help voting?  We're here for you!  Check out what we can do to get you to the polls on time. 

WANT HELP MAKING A VOTING PLAN?
Your voting options are absentee, early or election day on Nov 3rd.

  • HAND DELIVER YOUR ABSENTEE VOTING BALLOT — During early voting hours you can also hand in your sealed, signed absentee ballot envelope to BOE staff, who will time-stamp the envelope and ready it for processing. Then you can check the BOE website a day or two later to confirm receipt of your absentee ballot. 

  • EARLY VOTING — It's easy! BOE staff are being super diligent about disinfecting styluses and black sharpie pens and kiosk areas. Only one (or two if you come together) voter at a time is allowed in the voting area. Masks are required and there are chairs available if you are not able to stand for a long time. You can enter the BOE building to vote from both the Gallant Ave entrance and the Page Ave side. Thanks to the Chad McEvoy for AD101 campaign for the early voting schedule chart!

  • ELECTION DAY, NOV 3RD — Polls open at 6am and close promptly at 9pm throughout the county. Masks and safe distancing are required and precaution for Covid safety will be followed. Check out the NYS Board of Elections voter registration and poll site look up to find your name on the voter registration list and your polling place. 

  • FOR MORE INFORMATION — If you have any questions about your voting options and your voter registration contact our Delaware County Board of Elections at: (607) 832-5483. The staff is friendly and eager to help you vote.

And a reminder...


KEEP BREATHING!
As we move forward, lets support each other,
and keep our cool.

This is the most challenging election we have ever seen.
Fear and tensions are high. Remember to take care of yourself.
Some will try to provoke and distract us.
Don't take the bait.

Also remember, there are Republicans out there who can't go along with their party any more. Some of them are looking for a safe harbor.
Let's offer that safe harbor and thank them for supporting country over party. 
❤️
