Cuomo signs bills designed to make absentee voting easier in New York
(The Center Square) – New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Thursday signed three bills into law that aim to improve voter access for the Nov. 3 election.
Now, any voter can request an absentee ballot citing a risk of catching or spreading an illness. In addition, the window for requesting an absentee ballot has been widened by nearly two months, and any absentee ballot that with an Election Day postmark will be counted if the local board of election receives it within a week.
