Absentee ballots

In an executive order issued on Friday, May 1, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced that this year’s school budget vote and board of education election will take place on June 9, exclusively by absentee ballot due to the COVID-19 public health crisis. Read more.

Normally, absentee ballots are issued, upon request, to residents of the school district who will be out of town or unable to vote in person due to illness or disability. To vote via absentee ballot, district residents must first complete and sign an absentee ballot application.

If you are unable to access the absentee ballot, call Linda Livingston at 518-456-6200, ext. 3125 to have one mailed to you.
