The Rensselaer County Board of Elections, 1600 7th Avenue in Troy, will be open from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Monday (October 18th and October 25th) and Wednesday (October 20th and October 27th); and on Saturday (October 23rd and October 30th) from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. 

The extended hours are to accommodate voters who will be out of the county on Election Day, November 2nd, and who wish to apply for an absentee ballot.


Early Voting allows any registered voter in Rensselaer County to vote in-person at ANY ONE of the early voting poll sites located in the county before Election Day.

Voting during early voting is the same as voting on Election Day.  When you get to the early voting center, you will check in to vote, receive your ballot, and vote as in any other election.  There will be instructions available, and the election inspectors will be there to assist you as well.

If you vote during the early voting period, you are not eligible to vote again for that election on any other day during the early voting period, nor on Election Day.
