If you’re in one of the high-risk groups that could be most severely affected by the coronavirus, you might consider getting an absentee ballot that covers all the upcoming elections, from the April 28th Presidential Primaries through the November 3rd General Elections. It literally takes five minutes, though it does require that you print and mail your application, and thus, a stamp. Go to elections.ny.gov and they’ll walk you through it. But do it now. Applications must be postmarked no later than April 3rd and received by the Board of Elections no later than April 8th for you to be eligible to vote in the Primary. You can also go to vote.org — it’s just as easy.
