Process to Ensure Privacy When Counting Absentee Ballots
Education Law provides that an envelope containing a returned absentee ballot is not to be opened until a determination is made that there is no reason for rejecting the ballot, which could happen if, for example, the voter fails to provide the signature required by law to appear on the envelope containing the ballot. Once such a determination is made and the envelope opened, the ballot is withdrawn without unfolding and deposited into the proper ballot box. As a result, at the time of counting, the ballots will not be linked to the envelope in which they were returned.

Pursuant to the express language of the Education Law, absentee ballots must remain folded until they are actually counted.

STAR Program Information

  • Did You Know?

    The NYS Executive Budget for fiscal year 2022 proposes a cut to districts’ STAR reimbursement from NYS.

    The 2022 Executive Budget proposes a cut in state reimbursements that school districts receive through the STAR program. The proposed reduction in STAR payments to schools would be backfilled for FY 2022 by federal funds allocated through the Coronavirus Relief and Response Supplementary Allocation Act. Utilizing federal funds to supplant current state support to school districts poses a threat to districts’ long-term financial health. Without additional federal funds in future years, any reductions in STAR Exemption payments would result in a cost shift from the state to local school districts, who have no way to make up for this lost revenue due to the property tax cap.
