June 7 update: Gov. Cuomo extends the deadline to submit school budget/board election ballots

Minisink Valley school community:

Today, June 7, Gov. Cuomo issued an executive order extending the deadline for school districts to receive school budget ballots.

To be counted, school budget ballots can be accepted by hand delivery through 5 p.m. on June 9 and received by mail through June 16 by the school district.

In a statement, Gov. Cuomo said: “The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our world, and while we are making great progress and the numbers keep going down, no New Yorker should have to choose between their health and their right to vote. Extending the deadline to submit absentee ballots builds on our previous Executive Orders to make it easier for New Yorkers to vote absentee in the upcoming primary election and it will help to increase voter participation as we continue to fight this virus.”
