The Livingston County Board of Elections would like to remind residents of voting options as Election Day on November 3, 2020 draws near.
You can now apply for an absentee ballot under “temporary illness” if you wish to avoid voting in person because of the COVID-19 pandemic or due to risk of illness to yourself or others. You must select the temporary illness portion of the absentee ballot application. Applications can be found at
and can be either completed online or downloaded and mailed to the Board of Elections.
Livingston County voters wishing to drop off completed absentee ballots can do so at the Livingston County Board of Elections, Monday – Friday, 8AM – 4PM. Extended hours will be available during early voting and on Election Day.
If you need assistance in marking your absentee ballot, you may call the Livingston County Board of Elections at 585-243-7090 and make an appointment to utilize a ballot marking device.
During early voting, there will be a staff member monitoring the corridor for voters dropping off ballots only. The ballot will be taken from the voter, time-stamped, and secured.
On Election Day, you can drop off your ballot at a poll site. An inspector at the entrance of the poll site will take the voted ballot and secure it in a ballot bag labeled for that purpose thus avoiding any delay to the voter.
