Election Day

Election Date: November 8, 2016

Poll Locations

Poll Hours: 6am–9pm In New York all poll locations should be open for these hours.

This Poll Site Locator Tool not only tells you where your polling location is based on your address, but it also shows you your local, state and national districts.

Remember to write down your Election/Assembly District number. Often poll locations will serve more than one district so you will need to know which distric you are so that you can go to the right table in the polling location.
