New York State Voter's Bill of Rights
As a registered voter, you have the RIGHT TO:
FIRST TIME VOTER? Instructions on how to vote are available on the sample ballot posted in your polling place. If you need additional help, prior to signing in, ask the inspectors working at your polling place on election day.
CASTING A VOTE ON PAPER BALLOT: Review your ballot to be sure you have cast your votes as you intended. Be sure to vote for the number of candidates permitted, for each office on your ballot. Casting more votes than the maximum number permitted in any contest (overvoting), will void your votes for that contest only. If you make a mistake on your ballot, return it to the inspectors and you will be given another. After you insert your ballot into the scanner, wait for the message which tells you your ballot was successfully scanned.
PROBLEMS? Federal and state laws prohibit acts of fraud and misrepresentation on voting. When you encounter problems in voting contact your local county board or the State Board of Elections.
