CUOMO: Elections for town, villages, and schools get new dates in June, September

This week Governor Andrew Cuomo issued new guidance on how elections would unfold this year.

First, he indicated via executive order that New York State Board of Elections will include a postage-paid return envelope with an absentee ballot for elections held on June 23rd.

That isn’t new information, but it’s clarification on previous statements made by the governor during his daily briefings.

Second, school board and budget elections are happening via mail with postage-paid return envelopes inside across the state. The official date of those elections will be June 9th.

Third, village and town elections will be taking place on September 15th. Local election commissioners have not indicated if that will impact any races in the Finger Lakes region, but it should be assumed that if a village was scheduled to hold an election this spring – it will happen sometime in that window.

We’ll update this story with more information as we get updates from individual counties.
