Voter Qualifications

Eligible voters include those who meet the following criteria:

How do I determine if I'm registered to vote in Liberty?

Residents of the district who are registered to vote in a general election are automatically registered to vote in public referendums held by the district such as those for the annual school budget, capital project propositions and school board elections.

The registration of voters is valid for a period of four years. If a resident has not voted within that period, they must re-register. All new residents must register to vote.

Polls are open for district residents to vote from noon – 9 p.m. on Tuesday, May 17 at the Liberty High School gymnasium. If you’re not sure if you’re registered, you can click here to check your registration status.

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 in the Liberty Central School District Office, 115 Buckley St. Valid ID and current proof of residency required. Please call District Clerk Tania DeFrank at (845) 292-6990 if you unsure if you are a registered voter.

Can I vote by absentee ballot?

To vote by absentee ballot, you must fill out an application. Absentee ballot applications are available at the office of the district clerk. The district clerk must receive completed applications seven days prior to the vote if the ballot is to be mailed to the voter, or one day before the vote if the ballot is to be picked up personally by the voter. Anyone can pick-up multiple absentee ballot applications, but only the voter can personally pick-up an absentee ballot.

Absentee ballots are available for voters who are residents of the district, but who will not be able to physically vote in their designated polling place (e.g. college students, those with a disability.)

Absentee ballots are due by 5 p.m. on the day of the vote.

Where and when do I vote? 

The district budget vote and Board of Education election will be held on Tuesday, May 17, 2016. Polls are open from noon to - 9 p.m. and are located in the Liberty High School gymnasium, located at 125 Buckley St., Liberty, NY 12754.
