[Update 11/3/2009, a personal note from Kimberly Wilder – I went to vote in Suffolk County today. The machines in use were the old, lever machines. There was an electronic machine for people with disabilities to use set up in the corner.]

Election Info

Tuesday, November 3rd 2009 is Election Day. The polls are open in NY from 6am to 9pm.

2009 brings mostly local elections, including many Suffolk County and Nassau County countywide and town elections.

PeaceSmiths believes that part of democracy means that voters should have a choice on the ballot. There will be many races in Long Island where there is only one candidate on the ballot for an office. In those instances, PeaceSmiths suggests that voters write-in.*

Where to look for more info:

The New York State Board of Elections:

The Nassau County Board of Elections:

The Suffolk County Board of Elections:

If you have trouble with the Suffolk County link provided above, you could call them at:
(631) 852-4500 for election info.


* How-To Do A Write In Vote In NY

There are questions about which machines will be in use on November 2, 2009.

If they are the old machines…here is how you do a write in: Find the row you will do a write-in for. Look at the top, at the slanted slot. Pull back the lever to reveal a piece of paper. Write in your choice on the paper. You should be able to ask the election monitors for help.

If there are new machines…or if you have any trouble voting, you can always ask an election monitor for help. If they do not seem helpful, ask to see the election supervisor at your polling place.
