How do I determine if I'm registered to vote in Liberty?

Residents of the district who are registered to vote in a general election are eligible to vote at school district meetings and elections without further special school district registration.

If you are not a registered voter with the Board of Elections you may register at the school.  School registration of voters is valid for a period of four years. If the resident has not voted within that period, they must re-register. All new residents must register to vote.
