Village Election Postponed to April 28

Event Date: 
Wednesday, March 18, 2020 (All day)

On Monday evening, March 16, Governor Cuomo announced that he was postponing the March 18th village elections statewide until April 28, 2020.

In an effort to keep New Yorkers safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, Governor issued an executive order delaying village elections statewide until the April 28 primary election.

"Our top priority has been keeping New Yorkers safe and stopping the spread of the novel coronavirus," Governor Cuomo said. "Public health officials have been clear that reducing density is one of the most effective ways to stop the spread, and delaying village elections will help ensure poll workers and voters are not potentially exposed to the virus and at the same time maintain integrity in our election system."

Additional information will be distributed prior to April 28 as details become available.
