Action Alerts – Week of August 31

Nobody Is Above the Law in Syracuse

CNY Solidarity members and supporters:Please find below the weekly ACTION ALERTS from Indivisible NY24 and our legislative action teams. 
From now through Nov. 3, we’ll be focusing our weekly alerts largely on opportunities for engaging in direct voter contact, both locally and nationally. 

First off, everyone should make sure that you have a plan to vote yourself. (And then make sure your friends and family do too.) As with the primary election in June, you can now apply for an absentee ballot under temporary illness if you wish to avoid voting in person because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Just visit your county election board’s website (Onondaga County’s is here), download an absentee ballot application, and select “temporary illness” as your reason for voting absentee. (This option is authorized whether or not you yourself are ill.) Once you’ve filled out the application, you can hand deliver, mail, or email it to your county election board. 

If you applied for an absentee ballot for the Primary Election, it’s the same process here, but you do need to do it again in order to receive a ballot for the General Election. Ballots will be mailed out starting mid-September. Absentee ballot application forms and additional info are available here.
As in the June primary, you also have the option to vote early in person. In Onondaga County, there will be sites available in Camillus, Clay, Dewitt, Lafayette, and Syracuse, beginning on Oct. 24. More details here.
