Important Absentee Ballot Information
Absentee Ballots will remain sealed until the deadline of 5:00pm on Tuesday, June 16th.
After 5:00pm, no additional ballots will be accepted. Anything received after the deadline will be discarded. District officials will begin the task of validating return address markings and signatures on each envelope to determine there is no reason to reject the ballot. An envelope cannot be opened, and therefore will not be counted, if there is no signature on the back of the envelope, per Education Law 2018-A.
All envelopes validated for canvassing are then opened, ballots are removed while remaining folded, and are separated from the envelopes.
Once all of the envelopes are opened and ballots are withdrawn and separated from the envelopes, election officials will begin opening the ballots and running them through the automated ballot counting machine (the same machines used at our in-person votes over the last several years).
At this point, all ballots will be tallied by the machine and the official results will be shared with the community during the evening hours of Tuesday, June 16th.

- You MUST sign the back of the envelope in accordance with Education Law.
