ADDITIONAL INFORMATION REGARDING ABSENTEE BALLOTS
Any person who wishes to examine the list of absentee voters to whom ballots have been issued may request access to such list by e-mailing the District Clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org. If a qualified voter wishes to file a written challenge of the qualifications of any voter on this list, such challenge must be e-mailed to the District Clerk at email@example.com no later than 5:00 p.m. on June 9, 2020. Such e-mail must contain the reasons for such challenge. No written challenges received after 5:00 p.m. on June 9, 2020 will be considered.
Education Law provides that an envelope containing a returned 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 Once such a determination is made and the envelope opened, the ballot is withdrawn without unfolding and deposited into the proper ballot box.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. The counting of ballots will commence after 5:00 p.m. on June 9, 2020.
