The Town of Empire will hold a GENERAL ELECTION on Tuesday April 2, 2024

“Decisions are made by those who show up!” (Quote from the TV Series the West Wing) We encourage everyone to vote in our local election! 

Mail Ballot Elections make voting easy. You will receive your ballot in the mail, fill out your ballot at home, put it in the postage paid return envelope, and take it to the Post Office, or drop it off at Town Hall. Please verify your voter registration with the County to ensure you receive a Ballot. Ballots must be received at Town Hall by April 2, 2024.

Everyone is invited to a Town Hall Meeting on Tuesday, March 12 at 6:30 pm, to meet all the candidates for Mayor and Board of Trustees. This gives you an opportunity to get to know all of them better and hear why they want to serve as your Mayor and Board of Trustees.
