All voters will be mailed applications for absentee ballots to vote in the June primary elections in order to help avoid any threat of contracting the COVID-19 virus at polling places, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said Friday.

Cuomo said he will issue an executive order that will send the applications for absentee ballots to all voters. A voter must check the box on the existing application for “temporary illness or physical disability,” but will not be required to appear before election officials to obtain an absentee ballot. Voters would have to mail the application to their local board of election, which will then send absentee ballots to them.| read more ››

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s executive order temporarily suspends a portion of state election law. The order will allow voters to apply for absentee ballots because voting in person could make them susceptible to contracting the virus.

Cuomo Changes Election Rules in Effort to Slow Spread of COVID-19 Outbreak

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo signed an executive order Saturday temporarily modifying election procedures to help reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Under the new order, the candidate petitioning process will be suspended effective 5 p.m. Tuesday for the June primaries for congressional, state senate, state assembly and judicial races.

In addition, the signature requirements for ballot access will also be modified under the new order. Candidates now only need to collect 30 percent of the statutory threshold. This means that congressional candidates need only 375 signatures rather than 1,250. Meanwhile, State Senate candidates need 300 signatures rather than 1,000, and State Assembly candidates require 150 signatures instead of the normally-required 500.| read more ››
