Officials from the Cortland Enlarged City School District say the list of addresses provided by the Cortland County Board of Elections contained several errors.
A small number of addresses were incorrectly labeled as being within District boundaries when they’re in fact located in a neighboring school district, such as Homer and Marathon, for example,
“Some of these households have received an absentee ballot from the District in error,” officials said in a press release. “The list of voters was prepared by the Board of Elections especially for the absentee ballot mailing that is required this year. The District urges anyone aware of an error to contact the County Board of Elections.”
Voter rolls are being reviewed as they come into the Board of Elections to ensure none are counted from these mistaken addresses.
District officials say they’ll also alert the Board of Elections about any errors so that they can correct their records.
Eligible District voters are reminded that their ballot must be received at the District Office (1
Valley View Dr, Cortland) no later than 5 p.m. on June 9th to be counted.
