Process to Ensure Privacy When Counting Early Mail and Absentee Ballots

Education Law provides that an envelope containing a returned early mail or absentee ballot is not to be opened until a determination is made that there is no reason for rejecting the ballot, which could happen if, for example, the voter fails to provide the signature required by law to appear on the envelope containing the ballot. Once such a determination is made and the envelope opened, the ballot is withdrawn without unfolding and deposited into the proper ballot box. As a result, at the time of counting, the ballots will not be linked to the envelope in which they were returned.

Pursuant to the express language of the Education Law, absentee ballots must remain folded until they are actually counted. 

Please make sure you: 

  • Fill out the Oath envelope completely
  • Sign the Oath envelope
  • Place the Oath envelope into the postage-paid return envelope
  • Place the return envelope in the mail so it will be received by the district no later than 5 p.m. on June 9, 2020

Each early mail or absentee ballot in your household should be placed in its own Oath envelope and returned in its own postage-paid return envelope.
