April 7, 2020 Municipal Election

 April 7, 2020 Certified Municipal Election Results


The Town of Lyons held a municipal election on April 7, 2020, for the offices of the mayor and six trustee seats, along with four policy issues.


The State Election Law requires the Town to send ballots to registered overseas voters per the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA). The law allows ballots from UOCAVA voters to be postmarked on Election Day and be received by the eighth day after the election to be counted. In addition, a 2018 mandate requires mail ballot signatures to be verified by the election judges. Any ballots the judges are unable to verify must be cured within eight days after the election to be counted. The final canvassing of the election results will be held on the tenth day after the election, with final official election results available April 17, 2020. The results have been officially certified.

The newly elected officials will be sworn in at the Board of Trustees meeting scheduled for April 20 at 7 p.m., in the Shirley F. Johnson Council Chamber at Lyons Town Hall, 432 5th Ave.
