GOSHEN — Absentee ballots are available to Goshen Central School District residents who want to vote in the Feb. 28 capital improvement project referendum but will not be available that day due to illness, out-of-town business trips, being away at college, or certain other acceptable reasons.

There is a two-step process to receiving an absentee ballot:

Fill out an application for an absentee ballot to confirm why you will not be able to vote in person.

Fill out the actual absentee ballot to cast your vote.

You can download and print the application for an absentee ballot at http://bit.ly/2kOQEcY, or call the district clerk at 615-6720 and ask to have it mailed to you. Applications are due on Feb. 21, one week before the vote.

You can also visit the district clerk to fill it out in person at the Main St. Building, 227 Main St. in Goshen.

The district proposes to spend $30 million on a 15,000 square foot addition to the high school, along with upgrades to athletic facilities, information technology, and other improvements.
