REGISTRATION

VOTERS WHO RESIDE IN THE ITHACA CITY SCHOOL DISTRICT AND ARE CURRENTLY REGISTERED  FOR GENERAL ELECTIONS (WITH THE COUNTY BOARD OF ELECTIONS)
ARE ALREADY QUALIFIED TO VOTE IN SCHOOL DISTRICT ELECTIONS.

The District has established personal registration of voters and has divided the School District into 12 election districts. Accordingly, the only persons entitled to vote on May 15, 2018 are those who are “qualified voters” and who are “registered” to vote as set forth herein.  To be a “qualified voter” a person must be a citizen of the United States, at least 18 years of age, and a legal resident of the District for a period of 30 days immediately preceding May 15, 2018.  If a “qualified voter” has previously registered with the District or with the County Board of Elections and has voted within the last four (4) calendar years, he or she is eligible to vote at the May 15, 2018 Annual District Meeting and Election without re-registering. All other persons who wish to vote at the Annual District Meeting and Election must either pre-register with the District’s Board of Registration as set forth below, or be registered with the Tompkins County Elections Board to vote in general elections, pursuant to the provisions of Article 5 of the Election Law, on the date of the District’s Annual District Meeting and Election.

For those “qualified voters” who are not yet “registered” to vote, the District’s Board of Registration will meet in the Office of the Clerk of the School District, 400 Lake Street, Ithaca, New York, on May 1, 2018, between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. for the purpose of preparing a Register for each school election district, at which time any qualified voter who appears personally before the Board of Registration will be entitled to have his or her name placed on the District’s Register, provided that at such meeting of the Board of Registration, he or she is known or proven to the satisfaction of said Board of Registration to be then or thereafter entitled to vote at such Annual District Meeting and Election for which the Register is prepared.
