The 2021-22 Watervliet City School District budget vote and board election will be held from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, May 18, 2021.
Absentee ballots are available, upon request, to residents of the school district who will be out of town or unable to vote in person due to illness or disability. This year, Executive Order 202.81 allows voters who are afraid of contracting COVID-19, to select “illness” when requesting an absentee ballot. To vote via absentee ballot, district residents must first complete and sign an absentee ballot application. Download an application for an absentee ballot
