On Sunday, June 7, Governor Andrew Cuomo, in an executive order, stated that school districts in NY can accept school budget vote absentee ballots by mail until 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 16. (The deadline for hand-delivered ballots, however, remained 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 9.)
Please mail your absentee ballots as soon as possible. By law, ballots received by mail after 5 p.m. on June 16, can not be accepted and therefore can not be counted as a vote. Poll Inspectors will begin opening the received envelopes and counting ballots at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 16. This process will be live streamed via Google Meet. (The link will be available on bhbl.org on June 16.) The results will be announced once all ballots have been counted.
Ballots received AFTER June 16 can not be counted in the school budget and board of education election vote.
