Candidates must file nominating petitions for HCSD board

HUDSON – The Hudson City School District Board of Education will have two seats up for election this June. Each elected seat is a three-year, non-paid term ending in June 2023.

While Governor Cuomo’s Executive Order 202.26 dispenses with the requirement for candidates to obtain a minimum number of signatures on petitions, it does not modify the statutory duty for candidates to file a petition no later than 30 days before the election. Since 30 days before June 9, 2020 falls on a Sunday (May 10), by operation of law, the new deadline for candidates seeking to run for office is May 11 at 5 p.m.

Candidates should complete the top portion of the petition indicating their name and address. Petitions may be accepted via electronic means.

To be a member of the HCSD Board of Education, prospective candidates must have a primary residence within the Hudson City School District, be at least 18 years old and be a registered voter.

Candidates may also submit a letter or email declaring their intent to run with their name and address, provided it is received no later than May 11 at 5 p.m. Candidate names will be placed on the ballot in alphabetical order instead of drawing lots.
