DID YOU RECEIVE A NOTICE OF ABSENTEE BALLOT APPLICATION REJECTION?

rejection letter for absentee ballotAnyone in Monroe County who requested an Absentee Ballot for the General Election prior to August 20th, using Temporary Illness as their reason, will need to submit a new Absentee Ballot Application. Temporary Illness had not yet been approved for COVID-19 concerns for the General Election prior to August 20th. On that date Governor Cuomo signed into law a bill that approves the use of Temporary Illness for COVID-19 concerns from now through 2021.
