For the first time, Rockville Centre village residents will use just one polling place, instead of the usual 10, to vote in village elections, officials said.
Residents can cast their ballots on June 21 at the John A. Anderson Recreation Center, 111 N. Oceanside Rd., from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Candidates are running for mayor, a village justice and two trustees. All terms are for four years.
The village board of trustees voted in January to designate the recreation center as the sole polling location. The move will save the village around $10,000 to $12,000 on voting machine rentals and election inspectors, officials said. However, the change doesn’t affect general elections for county, state and federal offices when several polling places will be used.
Residents planning to vote by absentee ballot must file an application at Village Hall no later than Tuesday. Absentee ballots must be received no later than 5 p.m. on the day of the election.
New voters must register with the Nassau County Board of Elections by Saturday in order to be eligible to vote in the village election.
