10/2/2020 update: ATTENTION BROOKLYN VOTERS- By now you’re probably aware some voters may have received absentee ballot packages with the smaller “oath envelope” addressed to the wrong person. Because of the error, the BOE is sending EVERYONE who may be impacted a new absentee ballot package the week of October 5th. Destroy the old materials, and use the new items. Read the BOE’s official statement.
