NOTE 1:
Litigation challenging the state constitutionality of the statute was filed in Albany County Supreme Court (see, Elise Stefanik et al. v. Kathy Hochul et al., index number 908840-23) on September 20, 2023. However, at the time of this posting, the plaintiff's motion for preliminary injunction has not yet been decided by the court and it is unknown whether the litigation will be resolved before the conduct of the village election in March 2024. Should a resident file an application for an early mail ballot and the Albany County Supreme Court file that the statute is unconstitutional, the early mail ballot application will be returned to the applicant with a note indicating that the statute permitting early mail ballots was declared unconstitutional.
NOTE 2:
Absentee ballot applications must state the reason that the applicant will not be able to vote in person. Concern about exposure to COVID is no longer an acceptable reason for requesting an absentee ballot.
