Pursuant to Executive Order 202.26 issued on Friday, May 1, by Governor Andrew Cuomo, all voting for the June 9, 2020 election will be done by absentee ballot such that the school district must send absentee ballots with a postage paid return envelope to each “qualified voter.” There will be no “in-person” voting. A qualified voter is someone who is a US citizen, 18 years of age, a resident of the District for at least 30 days prior to the vote, and not disqualified by any reason set forth in NYS Election Law Section 5-106.
Anyone who meets the definition of a “qualified voter” but has not registered to vote, must do so to receive an absentee ballot from the Greater Johnstown School District. Visit this link to see if you are currently registered to vote in our school district. A qualified voter may register with the County Board of Elections or with the School District. Voter registration at the School District will take place on Tuesday, May 26, from 9am – 1pm in the high school auditorium lobby. Please be prepared to show photo ID and proof of residency. Masks are required for entry into the building. Contact the district clerk at 518-762-4611 ext. 3119 if you have questions regarding registration.
