Malverne school district voter registration
Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the NYS will conduct the school board and budget elections by mail only on June 9th.
During my neighborhood canvassing I encountered that school district residents do not participate in school elections (among other reasons), for their kids are either out of the K-12 public school system, or not yet there.
In order to vote in the annual school district elections, you must be a registered voter. You can register at the school district clerk’s office, or Nassau County Board of Elections, 240 Old Country Road – 5th Floor, Mineola, NY 11501, or at http://www.elections.ny.gov/VotingRegister.html
You also must be:
- A citizen of the United States,
- At least 18 years old by June 9, 2020 (the date of the election)
- A resident of the school district for at least 30 days prior to the elections
- Registered with either the school district’s board of voter registration or with the county board of elections. If you have previously registered to vote, but have not voted in either a school district or general election in the last four years, you must re-register to vote. To check your voter status (and learn your Assembly, Senate, County districts), visit https://voterlookup.elections.ny.gov/VoterSearch.aspx
You can obtain an absentee ballot at the central admin. office, 301 Wicks Lane, or in Mineola for Nassau County.
Residents who want to run for a seat on the board of education in Malverne school district must pick up a nomination petition at the district clerk’s office. Bring the petition, signed by at least 25 (this number varies depending on the number of voters) qualified voters to the clerk’s office by May 11, 2020.
