Voter Facts

Qualifications to Register to Vote

1.        Be a United States citizen;

2.        be 18 years old by December 31 of the year in which you file this form (note: you must be 18 years old by the date of the general, primary or other election in which you want to vote);

3.        live at your present address at least 30 days before an election;

4.        not be in prison or on parole for a felony conviction and;

5.        not be adjudged mentally incompetent by a court;

6.        not claim the right to vote elsewhere.

Now all you have to do is register and swear that your information is true and you are registered to vote.  Groups like ACORN encourage people to do this like shampoo. (Repeat)  Absentee Voting was very important to ACORN as – cartoon characters – pets and the dead could not always show up at the poll.  This is a very convenient way to make all those votes count.

Qualifications to Vote by Absentee Ballot

·         Absent from your county or, if a resident of New York City absent from said city, on Election Day.

·         Unable to appear at the polls due to temporary or permanent illness or disability;   or

·         Because you are the primary care giver of one or more individuals who are ill or physically disabled.

·         A patient or inmate in a Veterans’ AdministrationHospital.

·         Detained in jail awaiting Grand Jury action or confined in prison after conviction for an offense other than a felony.

Someone will have to beat the ACORN’s to the punch and put the absentee ballots in front of these people and make the sign their ballots.  Just make them sign you can now fill in the actual voting for them because you care.

How to Vote by Absentee Ballot (Deadlines)

Applications for Absentee Ballots are available at your county board of elections.

You may also download a PDF version of the New York State Absentee Ballot Application Form. ( 261KB)

Upon completion, applications must be mailed to your county board no later than the seventh day before the election or delivered in person no later than the day before the election.

Since the ACORN groups supplied the transportation of the ballots our group should do the same.

 

 

 

 

You may also request an Absentee Ballot by sending a letter to your county board of elections. The letter must be received by your county board no earlier than 30 days and no later than seven days before the election. The letter must contain the following information:

·         the address where you are registered

·         an address where the ballot is to be sent

·         the reason for the request, and

·         the signature of the voter

An application form will be mailed with your ballot. The application form must be completed and returned with your ballot.

If you cannot pick up your ballot, or will not be able to receive it through the mail, you have the right to designate someone to pick it up for you. Only that person designated on your application may pick up and deliver your ballot.

If you are permanently ill or disabled, you have the right to receive an Absentee Ballot for each subsequent election without further application. Simply file an application with your county board of elections indicating permanent illness or physical disability. You will then automatically receive an absentee ballot for every election until your registration is canceled.
