Early Mail Ballots – New in 2024
In 2024, New York State has instituted early mail voting for any residents wishing to vote in this manner. Similar to absentee voting, registered voters must request a mail-in ballot in writing within 30 days of the election (that is after April 21). Click here for the form to request an early mail ballot.
After verifying the status of the voter, the district will either mail the early mail ballot or the voter may pick it up at the district office. If a ballot is to be mailed, the request must be received at least seven days before the election.
All completed ballots must be received back to the district clerk by 5 p.m. on the budget vote and board of education election day, May 21.
Applications for absentee ballots may be obtained from the district clerk or downloaded here. Applications must be received by the clerk at least seven days before the election if the ballot is to be mailed to the voter or the day before the election if the ballot is to be delivered personally to the voter.
For further information, contact the district clerk at (845) 744-2031 ext. 4023.
All ballots must be received by the Office of the District Clerk no later than 5 p.m. on the day of the election.
