Hello Ridgewood Neighbors,
With mail-in ballots arriving as we speak, the time has finally come to vote YES to move all of Ridgewood’s local elections to November.
Here is a quick recap of why this makes sense for our community:
- Higher Turnout: Many more people vote in November than in April/May, even for local issues and candidates.
- Ease: Voting is easier and more accessible when it is on a single day during the year.
- Broader Representation: November’s larger turnout is more representative of the overall community and our diverse interests.
- Saving Money: Moving our local elections to November decreases costs to Ridgewood taxpayers.
- School Safety: Fewer days with outside foot traffic entering the schools will increase safety for our children.
- School Budget Vote: Citizens will retain their ability to vote on the school budget if it exceeds the state-mandated 2% cap on spending increases.
Please make sure to fill out your ballot and to follow all instructions carefully so your vote gets counted. Look for the Municipal Question on page 3 of the ballot, and vote YES!
Thanks again for your support.
One Village, One Vote!
