Voting during closure

As with all school districts in New York, the budget vote and board election will be conducted entirely by mail this year due to COVID-19.

The district mailed absentee ballots to all qualified voters during the week of May 26.

Completed ballots returned in person must be received at district headquarters at Academy Park by Tuesday, June 9 by 5 p.m. Ballots cannot be picked up at Academy Park after that deadline, either. 

Ballots returned by mail must be received Tuesday, June 16 by 5 p.m. Mailed ballots received after that deadline cannot be counted. 

In order to be mailed a ballot, individuals must have been registered with the Albany County Board of Elections by the close of business on May 22.

Individuals were able to continue to register with the Albany County Board of Elections until May 29, but anyone who registered after the close of business on May 22 needed to contact the district clerk to receive a ballot. 

The district also offered in-person registration on May 26 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m., to allow voters to receive a ballot in person or by mail. 

Ballots can only be supplied to registered voters. Qualified voters include all voters registered with the Albany County Board of Elections and those who have registered directly with the school district. You can use the Voter Information Portal below to check your voter registration status.

If you do not receive a ballot

If you do not receive a ballot, contact our board clerk who will verify your registration status. 

If you are registered, a ballot will be mailed if time allows. Voters can pick up ballots from our district office at 1 Academy Park.
