ALBION – The school district will count the absentee ballots for the budget, propositions and the candidates for the Board of Education on Thursday.

That differs from most local school districts, which counted the ballots on Tuesday.

Albion is giving the public a chance to review a list of people and their addresses who submitted more than 1,700 ballots. The district website has information about the list and the election.

To be an eligible voter, a person needs to be at least 18 and a resident of the district for at least 30 days at the time of the vote.

People who want to challenge a ballot must do so in person at the district office today.

The district plans to start counting the ballots at 10 a.m. on Thursday, with a special Board of Education meeting scheduled for 7:30 p.m. to accept the results of the election and vote.

The 1,700-plus ballots is about three times more than the 558 who voted in person in the last election on May 21, 2019.
