I JUST MOVED HERE. CAN I EVEN VOTE?

Short Answer:
As long as you've lived at your current residence (in Sea Cliff of course) for at least 30 days, consider yourself good to go.

Long Answer:
So it's not quite as easy as having just lived in Sea Cliff for 30 days. There are just a few additional qualifications that each person who votes absolutely must meet (per the Board of Elections).

You must:

  • Be a U.S. citizen;
  • Be 18 years old by December 31 of the year in which you file this form (note: you must be 18 years old by the date of the general, primary or other election in which you want to vote);
  • Live at your present address at least 30 days before an election;
  • Not be in jail or on parole for a felony conviction; and
  • Not claim the right to vote elsewhere

WAHHHH! I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT HOW A VILLAGE RUNS OR WHAT A TRUSTEE DOES OR WHY THE SKY IS BLUE OR WHERE MY MISSING SOCK IS. HELP!

Short Answer:
Well you must know something, because you're here right? Great first step. Take a deep breath and let us take care of you. Except for the missing sock thing. We really can't help you there. Did you check behind the dryer?

Long Answer:
You have questions, and we have answers. That's how this works. Check out our FAQ page to catch up on all the dirty details on how this glorious little village gets run everyday by extraordinary people!

Oh, and here is why the sky is blue. See we have answers!
