The six elected Village officials are the Mayor, the four Village trustees, and the Village Justice.
The Mayor and Village trustees are elected to two-year terms, which are staggered so the entire Board does not turn over in any single election. The Village Justice is elected to a four-year term.
Nominations to Village office are by petition, and are open to all who have lived in the Village for at least 30 days before the petition is filed and are at least 18 years of age. The Village election is held on the third Tuesday in June each year. Persons may register to vote on Registration Day, which is 10 days before the election, if they have been residents of Sands Point for at least 30 days before the election. If they have been registered with Nassau County at least 10 days before registration day, they are on the Village registration list. Absentee ballots are permitted, and must be requested at Village Hall no earlier than 28 days before the election and must be returned before the election. Traditionally, election results are announced at the June Village board meeting, which begins a few minutes after the polls close
at 9:00 pm on election day.Voting machines are set up in the meeting room of Village Hall, which serves as the polling place for the Village election as well as for state-wide and national elections in November.The Civic Association strongly urges residents to vote in all elections.
