Covid-19 Election Changes

The  Primary Election will take place June 23, 2020. Anyone can vote in this election by absentee ballot.  

You  will automatically  receive an absentee ballot application form in the mail. But you must fill it out and return it in order to obtain the ballot itself. Fill out your contact information and check the box "temporary illness or disability," and return it to the Seneca County Board of Elections. 

If you are a registered Democrat, you will be able to vote in the Presidential primary.

If you are a registered Republican, you will be able to vote in the primary for the 131st Assembly District. 

Unfortunately, this absentee ballot application will only apply for the primary. You may need to apply again for an absentee ballot to vote in the General Election in November. 

For more information and updates, go to or call the Board of Elections at 315-539-1760.
