Early voting, legalized this year in New York, will be held at two locations in Niagara County, starting Saturday, Oct. 26.
The sites are the St. John De LaSalle Center, 8469 Buffalo Ave., Niagara Falls, and Wrights Corners Fire Company, 4043 Lake Ave., Lockport.
Republican Election Commissioner Jennifer Sandonato said registered voters will be checked in via computer and a ballot for the correct district will be printed.
Both locations can accommodate voters from any community in Niagara County. Early voters are barred from voting on Election Day, Nov. 5.
Early voting times are 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday; noon to 8 p.m. Monday; 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday; noon to 8 p.m. Oct. 30; 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 31 and Nov. 1; and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Nov. 2 and 3.
The ballots will be gathered daily and locked in the election office in Lockport. They won't be counted until Nov. 5, Sandonato said.
Early voters' names will be reported to the state Board of Elections and will be publicly available upon request, she added.
