Gov. Cuomo extends absentee ballot deadline

Gov. Cuomo extends ballot deadline for district vote to June 16
Posted on 06/07/2020

Governor Andrew Cuomo has changed the deadline for the statewide school district budget vote ballots, extending it for any received by mail to June 16th. However, all hand-delivered ballots must still be submitted by 5 p.m. this Tuesday, June 9th.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, all voting this year is by Absentee Ballot only. West Irondequoit residents have the option to submit their ballots in a secure drop box next to the front door of the school district’s office at 321 List Ave. Again, the deadline for that is 5 p.m. this Tuesday. After that, only ballots received via the postal service will be accepted.

If any residents need extra ballots – two were mailed to each household – please call 342-5500 daily from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. to arrange a time to pick them up from District Office.

Please follow the instructions to submit ballots. Our district included an instruction sheet in the mailing.
