Register to Vote
Most states allow voters to submit a National Mail Voter Registration form. Vote.org provides state-specific voter registration deadlines, absentee voting information, and early voting dates for your state.
If you live in New York and have a state-issued Driver's License, Permit, or Non-Driver ID simply visit the NY DMV site to register to vote online, otherwise, you must complete a mail-in application to register to vote.
Most up-to-date information on NYC deadlines can be found at the NYC Board of Elections.
Early Voting in NYC
Every NYC voter can vote early in person before Election Day. However, you must vote at your assigned early voting site. Your early voting site may be different from your Election Day poll site, so make sure to check before you go. (Source: nycvotes.org)

New Voting Changes
The recent primary election was the first time since the start of the pandemic that voters were not able to site COVID-19 as a reason for applying for an absentee ballot, according to Gothamist.
However, voters who are feeling ill are still able to cite this as a reason to vote absentee.
