New York launches an Early Voting Public Awareness Campaign to promote interest in the newly-enacted program that started over the weekend and runs through Nov. 3. Voters can now text the word “Early Voting” to 81336 to receive early voting information. Officials say the program will not only give voting opportunities to those who can’t vote on Election Day but also reduce poll lines by taking ballots earlier. Polls are open on Election Day from 6:00 a.m. until 9:00 a.m.
