Absentee ballots for qualified voters in the Bethlehem Central School District are expected to be mailed Tuesday, June 2. Voters will want to fill out the ballot right away to ensure it is received by the day of the vote on June 9.

Only qualified voters on the district’s poll list will receive the mailed ballots automatically. The list can be viewed here. (This list list is current as of May 29, 2020. Requests to be added to the list after that date will not be reflected here.)

All completed ballots must be received by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 9.

There are two ways to deliver your ballot:
  • By mail: Please mail your return envelope using the prepaid return envelope included with your ballot. You must sign the envelope for your vote to be counted. The ballot must be received in the district by 5 p.m on Tuesday, June 9 for the vote to be counted.
  • Ballot box at BCHS: If you are concerned that your mailed ballot will not reach the district before the statutory deadline of 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 9, you can drop off your ballot in a secure, locked ballot box at BCHS. The ballot box has been set up outside the front entrance to the high school. This box is for official absentee ballots only. Ballots can be dropped off any day of the week, at any time, until 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 9.
