Optical Scan Voting Machines
Residents use optical scan voting machines during the annual school budget vote and board elections. These are the same machines residents use when voting in primaries and general elections in November. For a step-by-step guide to voting using optical scan voting machines, view this two-minute video, produced by the Warren County Board of Elections.
In order to vote in school elections, a person must be at least 18 years old, a U.S. citizen, registered to vote, and a resident of the Broadalbin-Perth Central School District for at least 30 days prior to the scheduled vote date.

District residents who have not registered to vote in general elections may register to vote in school elections from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., weekdays in the district office, or by calling 518-954-2501 to make other arrangements to register.
