Upcoming SBNC Election

School Board Nominating Committee Election
Ballots must be received by 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, January 12, 2021
Please note: Election Is Mail-In Ballot Only (no in-person voting)

The SBNC is the body of 30 residents serving staggered 3-year terms that vets applicants and nominates a proposed non-partisan slate of trustees for the Scarsdale Board of Education. Each year, voters elect new representatives from their neighborhood to fill spots vacated by those who have completed their SBNC service.

The deadline for Procedure Committee receipt of mail-in ballots at P.O. Box 172H in the Golden Horseshoe Post Office is 4 p.m. on Tuesday, January 12, 2021. Please visit the SBNC website to download and print the mail-in ballots and for the instructions on how to complete them. 

As a voter service reminder, please remember that each ballot must be sealed within its own unmarked privacy envelope. The unmarked envelope must be placed inside an outer mailing envelope that identifies your name and return address. The voter must sign the outer mailing envelope across the seal. Multiple ballots within a single envelope will render all such ballots invalid.
