School board and budget votes are today, with contested elections in both the Dryden and Ithaca school districts. Ithaca City School District voters vote in many places.. As usual, Town of Dryden residents living in the Ithaca City School District, have a complicated maze of places to go, mostly but not entirely different from their usual polling places:
If you live in election district 1 or 5 (meaning you vote at Etna Fire Station in regular elections), the parts of the Ithaca district east of Baker Hill Road, you vote at Northeast Elementary School (map).
If you live in election district 4, which includes Varna, Hanshaw Road from Ithaca to Route 13, and the area between Game Farm and Turkey Hill Roads, you vote at the Varna Community Center (map).
If you live in election district 8, the south side of Ellis Hollow Road over Snyder Hill to Route 79 and Bethel Grove (and normally vote at Bethel Grove Church), you vote at the Belle Sherman Annex (map).
If you live in election district 9, the north side of Ellis Hollow Road, Ellis Hollow Creek, Ringwood Road, and many other smaller roads there, then you vote at Caroline Elementary School (map) instead of your usual polling place in Varna.
ICSD polls are open from noon to 9:00pm.
The polling place for Dryden schools is the Middle School High School Auditorium, from 7:00am to 9:00pm.Posted by simon at May 20, 2008 7:47 AM in schools (Dryden) , schools (Ithaca)
