front of postcard with information on absentee ballot votingAs a reminder, in a May 1 executive order, Gov. Cuomo announced  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.

Qualified voters are defined as U.S citizens, at least 18- years- old by June 9-, -, and they must be a district resident for at least 30 days prior to the vote.

Because of  the COVID-19 Pandemic, there  is no personal voter registration held at school district offices prior to the June 9 vote.
