19. Here is how it works

Here's what happens in New York:

You are sent a mail in or absentee ballot (maybe you use it, maybe you don't)
In the poll book that election inspectors use on election day, you are marked VOTING ABSENTEE
you can STILL go in and vote in person, in which case you sign the poll book, are given your ballot, which is accounted for (not your VOTE, just the number of the ballot) Election Inspectors/Poll workers have 2-3 methods by which they MUST account for every ballot that leaves their hands, whether it goes into the machine, gets spoiled, or is used for an affidavit vote or emergency vote.
THEN, at the Board of Elections, if you had also returned your absentee/mail ballot, that would be checked against the poll records as they do the count -- if you had come in to vote in person, you've already voted and your "extra" vote is not counted.
