Vote / Election Information
The counting of ballots and election results will begin at 5:20 p.m. on Tuesday, June 16, 2020, following the twenty (20) minute period for the challenging of voter eligibility. At this point, with roughly 5,000 ballots expected, we are estimating approximately 16-19 working hours will be needed by the poll workers to complete the tabulation process. Thanks to several community members inquiring about this, we have developed an FAQ page for our website that can help you learn about the ballot tabulation process. To locate the document, please visit the site here: https://romecsd.org/UserFiles/Servers/Server_695381/Image/Election%20Q&A/Rome%20CSD%20Election%202020%20Q%20and%20A.pdf.
Absentee Ballot Issued List
In accordance with Education Law, the list of individuals who received an absentee ballot for the vote and elections must be publicized so that any member of the community can review the list and challenge the voter eligibility of an individual on the list. Upon reviewing the list, if you believe there is an error or would like to challenge the eligibility of a voter, community members may do so by submitting a letter to the district business office, or by calling the business office (315.338.6541) between 5:00 p.m. and 5:20 p.m. on Tuesday, June 16, 2020. A copy the absentee ballot issued list can be found on our website here: https://romecsd.org/UserFiles/Servers/Server_695381/File/Absentee/Absentee%20Master%20Csv%20for%20SCHOOL%20BUDGET%20VOTE.pdf.
