Voting information

This page contains information on the voting process for our budget vote and Board of Education election, which will be held on Tuesday, May 21.

Absentee/early voting ballots

Mail-in voting now available to all!

Albany voters will have a new and convenient option for casting ballots in this spring’s school budget vote and Board of Education election – early voting by mail. 

Early voting by mail will work much the same way that absentee voting traditionally has. The main change for this year is that the vote-by-mail option now is available to everyone. 

The City School District of Albany will continue to automatically send absentee ballots to people the Albany County Board of Elections designates as having a permanent disability or are in the military. 

However, everyone else also can vote by mail now, too. 

Applications for vote-by-mail and absentee ballots are available below. You also can call (518) 475-6015 and ask to have a vote-by-mail or absentee application mailed to you. 

In-person voting

The district will conduct voting on May 21 at locations throughout the city. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. until 9 p.m.
