How to request an absentee or military ballot for the May 18 budget vote

The 2021-22 Cohoes City School District budget vote and board election will be held from noon to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, May 18, 2021.

Absentee ballots are issued no earlier than 30 days before the election, upon request, to residents of the school district who will be out of town or unable to vote in person due to illness or disability. To vote via absentee ballot, district residents must first complete and sign an absentee ballot application.

A completed application must be received by the District Clerk at least seven (7) days before the election if the ballot is to be mailed to the voter or the day before the election if the ballot is to be picked up at the District Office. The ballot itself must be returned to the District Clerk no later than 5 p.m. on the day of the election.

A military voter may elect to receive his/her absentee ballot application and absentee ballot by mail, email or fax. The military voter must, however, return his/her original military ballot application and military ballot by mail or in person, regardless of how the absentee application or ballot was received. The District Clerk  will send the ballot no later than April 23, 2021. The District Clerk must then receive the military voter’s military ballot not later than 5:00 p.m. on the day of the vote.
