Through Oct. 31, Early Voting Time Travels You to Nov. 2’s Election Day

Daily through October 31, Early Voting allows you to have your say in the Nov. 2 General Election by taking care of that important citizenship task at your convenience (well, within available hours, which are daily and pretty long). There’s just one catch, if you can call it that: Your vote must be cast at the polling site assigned to you by address. For many in Chelsea, that will be The Shed at Hudson Yards, which is where we found ourselves on Sunday, October 24, the second day of Early Voting. A worker at the site told us participation was robust: 200 people on Saturday, with nearly 400 on the day of our visit (which occurred close to its 5pm closing time). Below, find info on Early Voting as well as Tuesday, November 2’s Election Day.

Find your poll site here and note: Upon entering any Board of Elections facility, you are required to wear a mask/face covering and maintain 6 feet of distance. For the Board’s website, click here.
