Do I have to reregister to vote by absentee ballot for every election in New York?

No. If you provide the board of elections with an application and statement that describes your permanent illness and/or disability that necessitates you voting by absentee ballot each election, an absentee ballot will automatically be mailed to you at each election, until you cancel your registration.
