School elections today

It's time once again for school elections. Both the Dryden and Ithaca school districts have four candidates running for three seats plus a budget to vote on.

In the Dryden School District, polls are open from 7:00am to 9:00pm at the Dryden High School-Middle School on Route 38 between the Villages of Dryden and Freeville.

In the Ithaca School District, polls open at noon, and it's complicated. Here's a quick summary of where to vote, though you may want to check the map to be certain which district you're in:

  • If you normally vote in District 8 at Bethel Grove Church Activities Center (1749 Slaterville Road), you vote at Belle Sherman Annex (Mitchell and Cornell Streets., Ithaca).

  • If you normally vote in District 9, Ellis Hollow, at the Varna Community Center, you vote at Caroline Elementary School, 2439 Slaterville Road (Route 79).

  • If you normally vote in District 4, Varna,, at the Varna Community Center (943 Dryden Rd), you still vote at the Varna Community Center.

  • If you normally vote in Districts 1 and 5 at the Etna Fire Station, you vote at Northeast Elementary School, Winthrop Drive, Ithaca.

As always, it's complicated.

While double-checking these, I also realized that the Ithaca Schools have a Twitter feed - you might find that useful if you live in the Ithaca district.
