​​Absentee Ballot Voting

​A registered voter may request an absentee ballot for any of the following reasons:

  • Absence from the county on election day;
  • Temporary illness or physical disability (temporary illness includes being unable to appear due to risk of contracting or spreading a communicable disease such as COVID-19);
  • Permanent illness or physical disability;
  • Duties related to primary care of one or more individuals who are ill or physically disabled;
  • Resident of a Veterans Health Administration Hospital; or
  • Detention in jail/prison, awaiting trial, awaiting action by a grand jury, or in prison for a conviction of a crime or offense which was not a felony.

How to Request an Absentee Ballot

               Your name and date of birth;

               The address where you are registered;

               The address where the ballot is to be sent; and

               The reason for the request.

When to Submit Your Request
If sending your absentee ballot application or letter requesting an absentee ballot by mail, email, fax, or electronically, it must be sent at least 7 days before the election. However, we suggest that you apply as early as possible. If submitting your absentee ballot application or letter requesting an absentee ballot in person, your request must be submitted no later than the day before the election.

How to Submit Your Absentee Ballot
You may mail your absentee ballot to the Nassau County Board of Elections using the return envelope provided. You should mail your ballot back as early as possible. You may instead choose to drop off your absentee ballot at the Board of Elections office in Mineola (240 Old Country Road, 5th Floor)
during normal business hours, or at any early voting polling place or election day polling place in Nassau County during the hours the polls are open.

Election Day Voting

In person voting. Polls are open from 6:00 A.M. to 9:00 P.M. To check your registration and the location of your polling place, visit voterlookup.elections.ny.gov/.
