I'd like to vote early, in person, in Manhattan. According to Obama's website
, There is no early voting in New York; according to the NYC Board of Elections' website
, "Absentee voting in person begins as soon as the ballots are available (at least 32 days before an election)."
I may be out of town on November 4., and I fear that by requesting an absentee ballot this late in the game, I may jeopardize my ability to vote. My mailing address is a P.O. box that takes black holes right out of the realm of the theoretical and incontravertibly proves that at least one exists, and it's in Morningside Heights. I'm talking, mail arriving weeks late (a separate gripe that may warrant its own AskMeFi post).
I've spent a while unsuccessfully slogging through the automated menus of 1-866-VOTE-NYC and, as seen above, Google returns conflicting results. I thought about getting a ballot in person at the Board of Elections Office, but given that the info I found on early voting may be suspect, I wonder about picking up absentee ballots in person, too.
Anyone got good intel or suggestions? Thanks, kids. Fifteen days.
