Absentee ballots available upon request for May 17 budget vote

Qualified residents of the Broadalbin-Perth Central School District may request an absentee ballot to participate in the May 17 budget vote and board elections.

Voters who want their absentee ballots mailed to them must return their application to the district office by May 11. Voters who plan to pick up their absentee ballot must return their application by May 16.
