COUNCIL DISTRICTS FOR EAST HAMPTON
HOW YOU CAN TAKE ACTION
You can do something to make a real change in the way East Hampton town government is run.
New York State law allows citizens of a town to change from an “at large” system of electing their Town Board, to a council district or “ward” system, in which each board member is elected from a specific district that he or she lives in. Registered voters in the Town of East Hampton can help make this change to more responsive and accountable government by:
- signing the petition to put the question of districts on the ballot;
- collecting signatures on the petition; and
- voting yes on the referendum when it appears on the ballot.
