Procedure Committee



Scarsdale has a Non-Partisan election system for the nomination of candidates for Village offices. The system is administered by the Procedure Committee, which also administers the procedure for the election of qualified residents to serve on the Citizens Nominating Committee and, at times, recommends amendments to the Non-Partisan Resolution. A FAQ sheet explaining Scarsdale's Non-Partisan System can be found in the 2018 Procedure Committee Forms section of this website.

To run for a position on the Citizens Nominating Committee, a candidate submits a brief biographical information form and a nominating petition signed by ten qualified voters from his/her neighborhood.  Both are archived on the 2018 Forms page.

Residents who are eligible voters are encouraged to vote in person or by mail-in ballot in the CNC election of CNC candidates and for proposed amendments to the Non-Partisan Resolution. The 2018 election was held on Tuesday, November 13, 2018 at Village Hall from 7-10 AM and 2-9 PM.

The PC proposed amendments to the Non-Partisan Resolution which were approved by the PC and appeared on the November 13 ballot were ratified by Scarsdale's voters. The League of Women Voters of Scarsdale had previously reviewed and endorsed the proposed amendments (see LWVS 2018 Consensus Report).

The 2018 Election Brochure* AND the MAIL-IN BALLOT** are also archived on the 2018 Forms page.

The CNC's 30 elected members represent all 5 elementary school neighborhoods: Edgewood, Fox Meadow, Greenacres, Heathcote and Quaker Ridge. Ten new members are typically elected to the CNC each November by Scarsdale voters to serve staggered 3-year terms. 

The list of CNC members now serving is available on the CNC page of this website.

The members of the 2018-2019 Procedure Committee, whose term extends through January 31, 2019, are: Charles Baltman; Sarah Bell; David Dembitzer; Eric Cheng, Vice Chair; Madelaine Eppenstein, Chair; Timothy Foley; Jeff Goodwin; Mayra Kirkendall-Rodríguez; Eli Mattioli; David Peck; Pam Rubin; Gregory Soldatenko; Nancy Steinberg; Michelle Sterling; and Bruce Wells.
