Nominating petitions for the Board of Education may be picked up during the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the District Clerk’s Office at the Willis Avenue School. These petitions are required in order for a candidate’s name to appear on the voting machine ballot. Please note that this year, a petition must be signed by at least 25 qualified voters (a qualified voter is a resident of the district qualified to vote, not necessarily registered). In addition, each petition must include the full name and residence of the candidate on each page before a qualified voter signs the petition.
Candidates for office of the Board of Education run at large (the candidate receiving the most votes win). The terms of office begin July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2022. Cheryl Lampasona’s term of office will expire June 30, 2019.
Please file your petition in the District Clerk’s office, located at 121 Jackson Avenue, Mineola, NY, no later than 5:00 p.m. on Monday, April 22, 2019.
If you need further information, please contact Linda Spagnola at 237-2032.
