The NYC Board of Elections has increased the number of early voting sites to open in Queens this month ahead of the general election.

There will be 22 early voting poll sites across the borough — an increase from the 18 sites that were available to residents ahead of the primary election in June.

New York City residents will be able to cast their ballot in person for mayor, public advocate, comptroller, borough president and city council member beginning Saturday, Oct. 23.

Early voting runs through Sunday, Oct. 31 ahead of Election Day on Tuesday, Nov. 2. Poll site hours vary by day. The schedule is below.

Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Election Day.

Early voting poll sites are different from Election Day poll sites. Voters should check their designated poll sites by entering their home addresses on the BOE website. They must vote at their designated early voting site if voting ahead of Nov. 2.

New Yorkers can also vote absentee in the election. The deadline to submit an online application for an absentee ballot is Monday. Mailed, emailed and faxed applications must also be received by the BOE by Monday, although voters can apply in person for an absentee ballot through Nov. 1. If deciding to vote absentee due to the risk of contracting COVID-19, applicants should check off “temporary illness” on their applications.
