Voter Qualifications

In order to be legally qualified to vote in the annual school district budget vote and Board of Education election, you must:

  • Be a U.S. citizen
  • Be a district resident for 30 days prior to the vote
  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Be registered to vote

How do I know if I am registered?

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.

Residents who are not sure if they are registered to vote can access the online Poll Finder to find out. 

How can I register to vote?

District residents who wish to register may do so from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, except weekends and holidays, at the office of the District Clerk, Liberty Central School District Office Building, 115 Buckley St., Liberty, NY.
Voter registration deadline is May 13, 2021.

Can I vote by absentee ballot?

Absentee ballot applications are available at the office of the district clerk prior to the budget vote and are available for voters who are residents of the district but who will not be able to physically vote in their designated polling place.

Who can I contact for more information?

For more information email Tania DeFrank, District Clerk or call 845-292-6990.
