Here’s why a signature update form may be necessary for absentee voting

What happens if your signature doesn’t match what’s on record with the Board of Elections?

As vote by mail becomes the norm moving forward, election officials around the state are offering a solution.


There’s a legislative push underway now to remove the ‘excuse’ necessary on paper to get a vote by mail ballot in New York.

However, many have asked this question: What if my signature has changed?

The answer, as News10NBC learned, is pretty simple. There’s a form, which your local board of election can send. Fill it out, send it back, and your signature will be updated.
