Absentee information that could help lots of people. Also there will be a post card coming to each household. IF you want an absentee you can sign & put your Date of Birth on the card & mail back to the Board of Elections to become eligible for an Absentee. It will have ALL options of how you can vote whether it's in person or absentee. If you have already applied you DO NOT need to send that card back-if you are a PERMANENT Absentee Voter you do not need to send that back. We have you covered.




There are lots of misunderstandings out there right now about mail ballots. NY State does NOT have an order to mail a ballot to every voter. The only way to receive an absentee ballot is to call our office and request one at this time. Your options for voting are one of the following: (as of 8/5/2020)

1. Vote in person in Belmont for Early Voting
2. Vote in person at your regular poll site
3. Absentee-YOU must make the effort to notify us that you will not be able to vote in person.

Call the office with any questions or concerns we are happy to help our Allegany County Voters. 🇺🇸


Our results have been tallied. Please use the link below. Our only local race was in the Town of Alma for Republican County Committee Members. It was a vote for 2 out of 4 option. All results for Democrat & Libertarian are on the same link. 🇺🇸

From the Board of Elections:
There have been postings on personal social media pages about receiving multiple Ballots for people who no longer reside at a house. Our answer for this is below.

The list for the school came from the Board of Elections. The schools used the county lists this year to assist in the large task of an executive order to mail all residents an absentee ballot.

Each year our office is required by law to mail an Address Voter Verification cardYellow Carr you received in February/March) is mailed to each and every voter. When they are returned undeliverable their voter status is changed, if they have moved out of state or county status is changed.

However many times family members do not think anything of their children getting mail at their childhood home address so they just throw away the card. Well then that just lets us know there are no issues with that address. Voters have to be responsible in changing their addresses. When mail comes to a home that the people no longer reside in it should not be kept it should be returned stating that person no longer lives there-it is a postage paid process & cost the home owner nothing-or a call to the Board of Elections making us aware they are no longer in your home.


Hello all school voters!
Although the Board of Elections DO NOT run school elections we do provide lists/labels for the districts. Upon supplying the list we have found that some of our street files were placing voters in the wrong school districts. We are correcting these as they are found. This is the first time a mailing of this sort has had to take place so it only stands to reason mistakes will be made/found. We are all human.

The clerks have been handed a huge undertaking this year due to the Covid 19 crisis-They are required to mail everyone a paper ballot. We ask that everyone be patient & kind during this time. All of us are working together to make it as seamless as possible. Please call our office if it concerns your voter record. If it concerns your school ballot please call the school directly-just think about being kind & considerate to all! 😊📚


Deadline for June Primary is in person Friday May 29th. Our office will have a drop box outside our office door for any in person registrations(during regular business hours only), a mailed form with a postmark of May 29th & received by June 3rd-this also stands for address changes. Call with questions or concerns. 🇺🇸


ATTENTION ALL ALLEGANY COUNTY DEMOCRATS, LIBERTARIANS & TOWN OF ALMA REPUBLICANS: these voters and ONLY these voters will be receiving a mailing about 3 voting options for the upcoming June 23rd Primary. If you choose to vote by Absentee you must simply complete the directions on the mailer-sign-detach & drop in the mail-no postage necessary.

We know you did not request this card. It is an Executive Order due to the Covid19 crisis we are all under. You will not be required to pay postage on an absentee ballot for the June Primary.

No other parties have a primary in Allegany County this time.

Any questions please feel free to call the Allegany County Board of Elections Monday-Friday, 8:30-4. 585-268-9295 or 9294. 🇺🇸
