Military ballots available through May 14

In November, the state implemented a new law giving members of the military the opportunity to cast their ballots for the election of members of the board of education and school district, public library trustees and the adoption of the annual budget, school district public library budget and referenda.

Persons serving in the military, along with their spouses and/or dependents, already had the ability to register as a military voter in New York state, entitling them to receive an absentee ballot for all federal, state and local races that they would be otherwise entitled to vote in if they were to go to their assigned polling place based on their New York residence. 

This new law expanded military members opportunities to vote. 

For the June 9 F-M school budget and school board election, military applications are available online and should be returned to F-M District Clerk Sarah Gridley via email to or fax to (315) 692-1227. Applications must be received no later than 5 p.m. May 14
