PublicForumThe annual School Budget Vote and School Board Election is scheduled for June 9th. In the School Board Election, voters will have a choice of candidates. There are three candidates running for two available seats on the School Board. The two highest vote recipients will win seats on the Scarsdale School Board.

Since this is a contested School Board election, the Scarsdale League of Women Voters is hosting a virtual candidate forum taking place this Sunday May 31st at 8:00 PM on Zoom. Please register here to view the candidate forum live. The candidate forum will then be available to view on the League’s website at LWVS.org .

All questions must be received by 12:00 PM on Saturday, May 30th for review by a panel of League Board members. A representative set of questions will be presented to the candidates at the forum.

The upcoming School Budget and School Board Vote will be administered by mail with NO IN-PERSON VOTING due to the pandemic. All qualified voters are entitled to receive an Absentee Ballot . Absentee Ballots will be mailed on May 28th and should arrive within a few days of the mailing date. If your absentee ballot is not received by June 1st, please contact Scarsdale District Clerk, Honore Adams at hadams@scarsdaleschools.org.

All ballots must be received BY MAIL to Scarsdale Schools’ Office of the District Clerk by 5:00 PM on June 9th. Due to the pandemic and need for social distancing, there will be no in-person drop off of the ballots; they all must be submitted by mail and RECEIVED by June 9th, regardless of the postmark.
