Ridgewood Voters Say Yes to Our Municipal Question

Dear Neighbors,

The votes are in and we are excited to announce that Ridgewood voters voted “YES” on our Municipal Question. Beginning in 2021, Ridgewood will elect representatives to our non-partisan Board of Education and Village Council in November, when history has proven that the most voters turn out and have their votes counted. We will no longer have expensive, low-turnout elections for these bodies in April and May.

The unofficial results from the Bergen County Clerk show on page 15 that 6,521 voted “Yes” while 4,459 voted “No.”

The One Village One Vote team thanks all of our supporters, friends and families for the work we did together to create positive change in our Village. From the beginning, this has been a community wide effort and we are grateful for each and every one of you.

We look forward to ensuring our Village’s ongoing prosperity together.

Warmly,

One Village, One Vote!

VOTE YES on election consolidation in Ridgewood.

Find our municipal question on PAGE 3 of your ballot and VOTE YES using black pen to fill in the circle next to the word YES.

VOTE YES FOR MUNICIPAL QUESTION ON PAGE 3:

Higher Turnout & Broader Representation on the Village Council & Board of Education: More people vote in November than in April/May. More of our voices will be heard.

Ease: Voting is easier and more accessible when elections are held on a single day.

Cost Savings: Moving our local elections to November saves the taxpayers money.

School Safety: With fewer elections, there will be less outside foot traffic in our schools.

School Budget Vote: With November elections, if the Board of Education proposes a tax levy increase greater than 2%, a special election will be scheduled.

Don’t delay. Ballots must be postmarked by 8pm on November 3rd in order to be counted.

Please take the time to share this message with friends, family and neighbors. Thank you in advance.

One Village, One Vote!
