COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. – Election boards across the region are preparing for early voting, which starts Saturday and will continue through Nov. 3.

It’s the first time counties will allow people to vote more than a week ahead of Election Day, after Gov. Cuomo signed a bill into law in January to help make voting more convenient as part of his justice agenda.

"Any opportunity to give voters the opportunity to cast their ballots is a good idea in my opinion. We are doing our best to implement the law as written. We have our early voting site as the law requires. Our entire county will be sharing one early voting site this year," said Michael Henric, commissioner of the Otsego County Board of Elections.

Henric says the voting process will remain the same, the only difference is the date the ballot is submitted.

"Now once early votes are cast, they are placed right into the machine. Which means unlike absentee ballots they can’t be challenged,” he said.
