Starting this year, you will be using a new voting machine.

To comply with the federal Help America Vote Act, New York State will have new voting machines this year. The old lever voting machines are being replaced by a new type of machine, which records votes from a marked paper ballot. This will help prevent voter fraud and verify elections when results are in question.

See detailed instructions below

The Help America Vote Act: a new way to vote!
