Voters can cast ballots early in person for 9 days before Nov. 3 election
ALBION – Registered voters in Orleans County will have the option to cast their ballots in early voting again this year.
The county will accept ballots at the Board of Elections from Oct. 24 to Nov. 1. The county will have election inspectors on site and residents can vote as in any other election.
The option is part of a state mandate to allow greater access to the polls. The county offered early voting for the first time a year ago and then again during the June primary.
Voters can cast their ballots at the Board of Elections in the County Administration Building, located behind the nursing home at 14016 Route 31.
The county will have four election inspectors on duty – 2 Republicans and 2 Democrats – for early voting.
The hours the polls will be open include:
• Oct. 24-25 (Saturday and Sunday) from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
• Oct. 26 (Monday) from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
• Oct. 27-28 (Tuesday and Wednesday) from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
• Oct. 29-30 (Thursday and Friday) from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
• Oct. 31-Nov. 1 (Saturday and Sunday) from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The general election is Nov. 3 with polls in the 10 towns in Orleans County open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Those polling sites will all be the same as in the last election except in Carlton, which is shifting from the Town Hall to the Carlton Rec Hall on Route 98.
