The Village of Pomona was formed on February 3, 1967 to fulfill the vision of a close-knit community vested in their rural roots. The Village is located in Rockland County, New York, with half of the Village in the Town of Haverstraw and the other half in the Town of Ramapo. The Village has about 3,000 residents.
The Village founders chose a name that reflects these rural roots. In Roman mythology, Pomona is the goddess of fruit trees, gardens and orchards.
Pomona has three Village parks, and is near many other parks, including Harriman State Park. Harriman State Park is the second-largest park in the New York State park system, with 31 lakes and reservoirs, 200 miles of hiking trails, miles of streams and scenic roads, and scores of wildlife species, vistas and vantage points.

The information is in. To get an Absentee Ballot from the Town of Ramapo you must fill out a Ramapo Special Election Absentee Application Form. The form must be sent with an original signature (no scans and emails allowed).
If you want the Town of Ramapo to mail the form to you, the application must be sent in by September 23.
If you hand deliver the Absentee Ballot Application Form the deadline is September 29. So if last minute plans will keep you out of the town, you can literally go in on the Monday before the election and request the ballot, fill it out and submit it.
