Notice to PHA Residents

Notice to PHA Residents

It is our understanding that several residents may have inadvertently signed absentee ballots for the upcoming local City of Plattsburgh elections to be held on November 5, 2013.  Please be advised that there are specific conditions that an individual must meet to vote by absentee ballot.

These conditions are as follows:

  • Absent from your county or, if a resident of New York City, absent from said city on Election Day.
  • Unable to appear at the polls due to a temporary or permanent illness or disability; or because you are the primary care giver of one or more individuals who are ill or physically disabled.
  • A patient or inmate in a Veterans Administration Hospital.
  • Detained in jail awaiting Grand Jury action or confined in prison after conviction for an offense other than a felony.

The Plattsburgh Housing Authority community can be vulnerable to individuals, groups or organizations looking to exploit our community.  The housing community consists of a large number of people living in fairly close proximity which potentially leads to certain individuals and/or groups taking advantage of our housing population.

Please be cautious anytime a non-Plattsburgh Housing Authority employee comes to your residence, especially if they ask for your signature or a payment of any type.  No Plattsburgh Housing Authority will ever ask for a payment at your door.
