Residents living in the Liverpool Central School District who are not registered to vote may still do so before the School Budget vote and Board of Education election on May 18.
Voters must be:
- Citizens of the United States;
- 18 years of age or older;
- Residents of the school district for at least a 30-day period immediately preceding the election; and
- Registered with the district Board of Voter Registration or the Onondaga County Board of Elections.
Residents who are registered to vote with LCSD, and have maintained that registration by voting in a school district election within the last four calendar years, are properly registered to vote. Residents who are not registered to vote can do so on Tuesday, May 11, at the District Office (195 Blackberry Road in Bayberry) between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Anyone unable to register on May 11 can visit the Onondaga County Board of Elections Voter Registration Web site to learn how to register to vote by mail.
Those who currently are registered to vote with the Onondaga County Board of Elections also may vote in school elections with no further registration. However, those who are not also entered in the school district register of voters may experience a slight delay at the polls because they will be asked to execute poll records for the district voter file before they will be permitted to vote.
Qualified voters who will be away from home or are otherwise unable to vote in person may vote by absentee ballot. Absentee ballots can be mailed to residents until May 11. After May 11, residents must pick them up in Room 1 of the District Office. To obtain an absentee ballot application, or for more information, contact the Office of the Deputy Superintendent at 315-622-7148.
The District Clerk must receive absentee ballots no later than 5 p.m. on the School Budget Vote Day (May 18).
