In the next few days all registered voters will be receiving an absentee application in the mail from the Genesee County Board of Elections. This allows voters to use “temporary illness” due to the COVID-19 pandemic to apply and mail in your application with a pre-paid envelope.
After we receive your application, we will mail your ballot (or ballots in the case of some voters who will receive multiple ballots) out to you so that you will be able to vote safely.
Please note - under the modification of the Election Law governing absentee voting, when you apply for an absentee ballot for temporary illness due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is only applicable for the Primary and Special Election on June 23, 2020. Please mark the box temporary illness.
The Constitution of the State of New York provides for the appointment of bipartisan Boards of Elections whose responsibility would include the duties of registering voters maintain voter registration records and conduct elections, administering the Election Law in a fair and honest manner.
The Board of Elections has as its goal the protection of the voting public in every aspect of their participation in the electoral process, from registration to their involvement as candidates, if that is their desire, to the final recording of their votes. The entire process involves the maintenance of all records accurately and completely, the explanation of the intricacies of the caucus and petition processes as well as campaign finance responsibilities.
