School budget votes and elections to the board of education are held annually on the third Tuesday in May.
Who can vote?
You are eligible to vote if you are a U.S. citizen, 18 years or older, a district resident for at least 30 days prior to the vote, and registered. If you are registered to vote in general elections you are automatically eligible to vote in school elections.
How do I know if I am registered to vote?
Residents of the district who are registered to vote in a general election are eligible to vote at school district meetings and elections without further special school district registration.
If you are not a registered voter with the Board of Elections you may register at the school. School registration of voters is valid for a period of four years. If the resident has not voted within that period, they must re-register. All new residents must register to vote.
Residents who are not sure if they are registered to vote can find out at the New York State Board of Election’s online Voter Registration and Poll Site Search.
Absentee ballot applications are available at the office of the district clerk in the weeks prior to an election.
Completed applications must be received by the district clerk at least seven (7) days before the election if the ballot is to be mailed to the voter. Anyone can pick-up multiple absentee ballot applications, but only the voter can personally pick-up an absentee ballot.
Absentee ballots are available for voters who are residents of the district, but who will not be able to physically vote in their designated polling place.
