In accordance with Governor Cuomo’s Executive Order, the school district budget vote and school board election will be held on June 9, 2020 via absentee ballot.
All registered voters in the school district will receive a mailing the week of May 25, 2020. In the envelope, there will be an absentee ballot and a postage paid oath envelope that need to be completed and received by the district no later than 5 PM on June 9, 2020. The oath envelope must be completed in full on the front and signed on the back to be valid. At 5 PM all absentee ballots will be opened by election inspectors and will be live-streamed for anyone to view.
