Annual Budget Vote News


Budget Passes -Thank you to Community!

West Genesee residents approved the 2017-2018 budget and bus propositions on May 16, 2017.

The $85,216,870 budget received 1,073 favorable votes and 186 votes in opposition.

A second proposition to purchase district vehicles was approved 1,014 to 247. Thank you to the community for your continued support!

Another proposition that would provide funding for two area libraries (Maxwell and Fairmount) was put to a vote. The proposition for Maxwell and Fairmount Libraries was approved with 979 votes in favor and 280 votes opposed.

Board of Education Candidates are Elected

Elected to the Board of Education for three-year terms beginning in July, are incumbents Shawn J. Mitchell with 877 votes, James M. Soper with 927 votes, and Neil B. Widrick with 882 votes. Tonya D. Wilson received 632 votes.   


When you visit the polls for the Annual Meeting on May 16, 2017, it will again have a little different feel to it. Last year the laws allowing us to utilize the pull lever machines expired, so we began utilizing the paper ballots and scanner machine that you have become accustomed to in general elections. 

What to Expect

1.  The vote will remain in the High School Auditorium Lobby @ 5201 West Genesee Street, Camillus, New York 13031.

2.  The voter registration process will be the same utilizing pre-printed registration books.

3.  After signing the registration book, you will be handed a paper ballot.

4.  You will complete your paper ballot in one of the available privacy booths.

5.  After you complete your ballot, you will feed it into one of two available scanners.

New Feature

One of biggest factors that slows the voting process, especially for new residents or students that are recently eighteen years old, is if your name is not in the Voter registration book.  We have a feature that will allow you to verify this ahead of the election.  Please click on the link below to verify if you are registered to vote in our annual meeting and election of school board candidates.
