If you voted in the 2018 General elections, you are automatically eligible to vote in the 2019 Neighborhood Board elections. 

Residents who are not eligible to vote in the General elections may also submit a voter application to the NCO specifically for the Neighborhood Board elections. Forms must be postmarked or hand delivered by February 15, 2019.

How can I find out which Board or district I am eligible to vote for?

There is a street index posted online at

Assistance is available by calling 768-3710.

When will the Neighborhood Board elections begin and end?

The election is slated to begin April 26, 2019 and end Friday, May 17, 2019.

When will voting passcodes be mailed out?

What if I can't vote online?

When will the results be released?

The Results are released no later than 7 days following the end of voting.

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.
