Beginning Monday, October 5, the Ontario County Board of Elections (BOE) will be open for business at the County’s newly renovated and expanded office facility located at 74 Ontario Street, Canandaigua. For the past two years, BOE has been operating from a temporary space located at the County campus at 2930 County Road 48 while a $14.8 million renovation and expansion project was underway. The move back to its original location will facilitate early voting for this year’s election.
“We are pleased to be back at our original location, and in time for a unique election season,” said BOE Commissioner Charles Evangelista. “Due to the pandemic and anticipated high voter turnout for the Presidential election, we are taking steps to ensure safe and expanded polling opportunities for our registered voters.”
“This year, voters have several options to consider when voting in the general election,” said BOE Commissioner Michael Northrup. “Registered voters may cast polls early, they can submit an absentee ballot, or they can participate in the election in a traditional fashion by voting in person at their polling site on Election Day.”
Registered voters who choose to vote early may cast ballots from October 24 through November 1 at one of three locations:
- Ontario County Board of Elections facility located at 74 Ontario Street, Canandaigua
- Victor Town Hall, 85 E. Main Street, Victor
- Geneva Housing Authority Administration Building, 41 Lewis Street, Geneva
