IRVINGTON, N.Y. An Irvington referendum in the upcoming elections will have voters deciding whether to move village elections to November or keep them in March.
Moving the date of village elections means voters would elect village officials at the same time as state and federal representatives. New Irvington officials would take office in December.
If approved, the move in election dates would take place in 2013. Irvington officials up for re-election would see their terms extended by a few months to accommodate the date change.
Irvington officials say moving elections to November would give trustees more preparation to make changes and vote on the village budget. November elections would also bring in more Irvington voters and be more efficient, officials say.
Nearby villages Tarrytown, Sleepy Hollow, Briarcliff Manor and Hastings hold March elections. Ardsley and Dobbs Ferry hold elections in November. The towns of Ossining and Greenburgh also vote in November.
