General Election Day – Is November 5, 2019 but you can now vote early!
Voting is about to get easier for New Yorkers. One of the key reforms adopted this year by the Legislature is the provision for early voting across the state. Early voting allows you to vote in person at a poll site within your county for nine (9) days, beginning Saturday, October 26 and continuing through Sunday, November 3. You do not need to have a reason or excuse to vote early.
The poll sites for early voting will not necessarily be your usual poll site location. Each county will determine where the poll sites for early voting will be and the hours each site will be open for voting. Some counties will assign you to a specific poll site during early voting days and other counties will allow you to go to any poll site within the county to vote early. Click here to see where you can vote in your county.

Section 495 to the Real Property Tax Law requires counties, cities, towns, villages and school districts to attach to their tentative/preliminary budgets an exemption report.
Exemption reports will provide taxpayers, policy makers, media and the general public with greater transparency on property tax exemptions and their effect on overall property taxes.
Exemptions are reductions in property taxes granted to certain groups of property owners (e.g., non-profits, seniors, veterans) and are paid for by increases in property taxes on all other taxpayers (except for the STAR exemption, which is funded directly by New York State).
