Ahead of the Nov. 7 general election, key deadlines for voter registration and absentee balloting are coming up in the next two weeks.

New registration forms from eligible voters must be received by the Suffolk County Board of Elections by Oct. 28. That is also the day that early voting begins across New York State. Voters must be citizens of the United States and at least 18 years old.

For previously registered voters who are changing their address, those forms must be received no later than Monday.

Monday is also the date by which absentee voters must send in their applications for absentee ballots. These applications can be submitted in-person at the board of elections through Nov. 6.

To assist voters with registration and absentee balloting, the Suffolk County Board of Elections will offer extended hours on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Monday and next Thursday until 7 p.m.

Additional information for voters, as well as most forms, can be found online at
