Dear Residents,

The Mayor and the Board of Trustees have been reviewing the plan to re-open Village Hall and the commencement of in-person Public Hearings and Board Meetings in consultation with our Village Attorney and in accordance with NY State guidelines and restrictions.You will receive further communication very soon once the plan is approved.

This email is to provide an update regarding the Democratic Primary Election scheduled for Tue. June 23, 2020. The Board of Elections will utilize Plandome Village Hall for the Democratic Congressional and Presidential Primary Election on June 23. Polls open at 6 a.m. and close at 9 p.m.

I spoke to the Board of Elections and they confirmed they are fully prepared to adhere to the required COVID19 precautions – and they are responsible for the election process.

Board of Elections (BOE) responsibilities and voting guidelines:

  • BOE mailed an application for absentee ballots to every eligible registered Democrat. If you did not receive an application, please call the BOE office.
