WE NEED YOUR HELP! BUDGET RE-VOTE TUESDAY APRIL 26: The OVUUSD budget was defeated in March with fewer than a third of the usual voter turn out. Why? Perhaps because voters did not realize that Brandon and Pittsford mailed municipal ballots and the schools, by law, were not allowed to do the same. We need your help! The new vote for a slightly reduced budget will take place on April 26, 2022 (see below, you can vote early!). A virtual informational session will take place on April 25 at 6:30 pm. Please spread the word far and wide! Show up and be heard- vote! YOU CAN VOTE EARLY: Later this week, town offices will have the official ballots ready and you can go into your town office and vote early or you can request an absentee ballot if you don’t prefer to vote in person. We will notify you when walk-in voting is available.
