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 the office of the Board of Education run at-large, meaning that the candidate receiving the most votes win. The terms of office begin July 1, 2020, through June 30, 2023. Margaret Ballantyne and Patrick Talty’s terms of office will expire on June 30, 2020.
Please file your petition in the District Clerk’s office, located at 121 Jackson Avenue in Mineola, no later than 5:00 p.m. on Monday, April 20. If you need further information, please contact Linda Spagnola at (516) 237-2032.
