Can I vote in school elections?
To vote in school district elections, all voters must be United States citizens, age 18 or older on election day, residents of the BH-BL school district for 30 days immediately prior to election day, and registered.
Registering to Vote
You are already registered to vote in school elections if you have registered to vote in a General Election with your County Board of Elections. If you are not already registered, you may do so by registering with your County Board of Elections.
Registered voters may vote by absentee ballot if they are unable to appear at the polling place the day of the school budget vote. To receive an absentee ballot call the Deputy Clerk of the Board Rebecca Manson (ext. 85029) to request an application form or download the absentee ballot application. The application must be returned to the Deputy Clerk or Clerk of the Board’s office at least seven days before the election if the ballot is to be mailed to the voter, or at least one day before the election if the ballot is to be picked up personally by the voter at the district office, 88 Lakehill Road, Burnt Hills, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Absentee ballots will be counted only if they are returned to the Deputy Clerk or Clerk of the Board no later than 5 p.m. on the day of the school budget vote. For more information, contact Rebecca Manson at 399-9141, ext. 85029.
