Absentee ballot applications for the upcoming Village election were mailed out on Monday, February 22 and many have already received them today.  They are going to all registered voters of the Village.  The polls will still be open on Tuesday, March 16, noon - 9:00 pm as usual, but the Village Board wanted to give everyone this option since there is still some concern over Covid exposure.  Please be aware of the following:


Town Hall will be open for voting ONLY on Election Day. You will not be able to pay bills, and will only be able to go to other offices by appointment, just as the case is now.


If you vote absentee, but then change your mind and want to vote in person,  you will be able to do so.  Absentee ballots aren't opened or counted until the polls close, so if we open one and the records show you already voted earlier in the day, your absentee ballot will be disposed of.


If you live in the Village and are not yet registered, you can register with Essex County Board of Elections until March 5 to be eligible for this election.  Call them at 518-873-3474 for information.


If you have any questions about the absentee application or voting in the Village in general, please contact the Clerk's office at 518-523-2584. Thank you.


As of December 9, 2020




All appearances are adjourned to a later date.


Please call the Court Clerk if you have any questions:

Welcome to the Village of Lake Placid official website. The Village of Lake Placid was incorporated in 1900 and is located in the Town of North Elba in the Adirondack Mountains in the northwestern corner of Essex County, New York. The Village is internationally known having proudly hosted the Winter Olympics twice in 1932 and 1980 and is the site of the "Miracle on Ice" when the USA men's hockey team defeated the heavily favored USSR team to go on and win the Gold Medal in the '80 Olympics.  Lake Placid is also home to one of only three year-round United States Olympic Training Centers and periodically hosts world-class competitions in downhill and Nordic skiing, biathlon, ski jumping, luge, bobsledding, skeleton, speed skating and figure skating.


In a setting offering incredible views of the Adirondack Mountains including New York State's highest peak at Mt. Marcy, Lake Placid provides a plethora of outdoor activities from downhill skiing on Whiteface, the Olympic Mountain, to cross-country skiing, year-round hiking, fishing, ice-climbing, cycling, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, and snowmobiling. The Village of Lake Placid annually host the Empire State Winter Games in February, the Lake Placid and I Love New York Horseshows in late June, and the Lake Placid Ironman in July.

In addition, the Village of Lake Placid offers outstanding dining experiences at its many restaurants, hotels and resorts, unique shopping experiences along its picturesque Main Street and many cultural activities. The Lake Placid Center for the Arts offers year-round music, dance, theatre, film and family programs. The Lake Placid Sinfonietta is a summer chamber orchestra whose musicians come from larger orchestras and university faculties throughout the country. For six weeks in the summer the Sinfonietta offers weekly classical performances at the Center for the Arts on Sunday evenings, in Mid's Park on Main Street on Wednesday evenings, and at various locations in the Adirondacks.  The Lake Placid Film Forum was co-founded in 2000 by author Russell Banks, former New York Daily News Critic Kathleen Carroll and artist Naj Wikoff and is an annual mid-June event which, like a film festival, exhibits a series of films and often features the filmmakers and cast members who attend the screenings.  The Lake Placid Institute creates opportunities for learning, sharing, and enjoying the cultural life of the Adirondacks.

A small town with a big city feel, the Village of Lake Placid is a great place to raise a family. Both public and private schools offer a well-rounded education to our children at the Lake Placid Central School, North Country School, Northwood School and National Sports Academy. Excellent health care facilities are provided by Adirondack Health with 24-hour emergency services, outpatient services and primary and specialty care services.
