Advocacy Day - Schools as Polling Places
NYSSBA members have continued to raise concerns about the use of school district buildings as polling places and wish to have the right to decline that designation. Legislation has been introduced that would allow districts to decline use of their buildings for voting in state, federal and local elections. This bill (A.4743, Galef) would also allow districts to move school district elections to a building other than a school building.
NYSSBA is planning an advocacy day on Tuesday, April 30th to promote this important legislation. If your district would be interested in participating in this event, please contact Belinda Heckler at 518-783-3742 or Belinda.firstname.lastname@example.org.
NYSSBA's Governmental Relations team will continue to report on these and other issues. For more information, visit our Key Issues Page,
