County Absentee Ballot Application

County Absentee Ballot Application

The Governor has signed an Executive Order (EO 202.15) that due to the potential for every voter to be a carrier of the COVID-19 virus, "temporary illness of physical disability" would be the reason on the application to select for voters who wish to file an Absentee Ballot Application for the COVID-19 Pandemic.

***** Just for the June 23, 2020 Primary, the N.Y.S. Governor (EO 202.15) has allowed for the requesting of an Absentee Ballot via e-mail or fax, without the need for a signature. Please provide your Name, Address and Date of Birth in your request for us to be able to confirm your identity. Your signature is still required on the envelope before the return of the Absentee Ballot. Send E-Mails to vote@co.chautauqua.ny.us or Fax at 716-753-4111.
