The Primary is Here!

Hi Everyone,

The Primary is upon us and Early Voting begins on Saturday, June 13.
Here in Mt Pleasant the voting location is the Mt. Pleasant Community Center at 125 Lozza Drive in Valhalla. 

Lozza Drive is off Columbus Ave, 1 traffic light north of Stevens and Mt. Pleasant Town Hall. Once on Lozza, look for the MPCC sign that will direct you to the area of the Community Center and Water Dept. The Community Center will be to your right. There is plenty of parking.

Early Voting Days and Hours are: 
Saturday, June 13th: 12 pm to 5 pm 
Sunday, June 14th: 12 pm to 5 pm 
Monday, June 15th: 8 am to 4 pm

Friday, June 19th : 8 am to 4 pm

Sunday, June 21st: 12 pm to 5 pm  

Tuesday, June 23, 6 am - 9 pm is the Primary Election.
If you haven't received a card from the Board of Elections telling you where to vote, please check with them. They have consolidated some voting sites so your usual location may not be operational. You can check using the link on the BOE website https://citizenparticipation.westchestergov.com/find-polling-place. (This may not work. I tried it and it couldn't find my polling site.) Or you can call them at: 914-995-5700. Or you can use the League of Women Voters polling site finder at:https://www.vote411.org/search-by-topic?tid_1%5B0%5D=12 

Absentee Ballots
My understanding is that we can still request Absentee Ballots, even if we didn't respond to the request application sent out a few weeks ago. Check out this Board of Elections page for more information: https://citizenparticipation.westchestergov.com/voting/absentee-ballots

If you've received an Absentee Ballot, please complete it and put it in the mail. You may also hand deliver it to the Early Voting site. Must be postmarked by June 22.

I know this can feel overwhelming, but we're learning a new system during a pandemic. I have every confidence that we're gonna do this!

Stay safe. Wear a mask - they're required to enter a polling place. Otherwise they're just a really good and responsible idea.
