How often are the Neighborhood Board elections?
Neighborhood Boards are elected every two years, in odd numbered years.
Why doesn't the NCO hold elections in conjunction with the State elections?
The State has opined that the Neighborhood Board elections may not be permitted into the State's polling places during the conduct of State or County elections.
Why is on-line the preferred method of voting?
In 2009, Neighborhood started on-line voting as a means to cut costs and be more environmentally friendly.
Why will uncontested districts not receive a passcode?
This is a cost-saving measure as uncontested districts have one or fewer candidates, in which case voting is not necessary.
