The polls are open until 9 p.m.in most communities.

Voters will choose four candidates to serve on the Board of Education.

Vestal's budget has come under fire in recent days over a proposed tax levy increase while the district maintains a multi-million dollar fund surplus.

Martinez Unified School District Board of Education will vote Monday on a resolution that says the District's 2019-20 budget must cut spending by as much as $3.5 million.

District spokeswoman Rachel Strauch-Nelson said the policy change is part of a routine update of policies and is meant to "codify the board's current ways of working". Board president James Howard did not return a phone call seeking comment.

Districts need only a simple majority of votes cast Tuesday to approve the spending plans on the ballot, because none of them is looking to exceed the state's property tax limit. The district has to go to a contingency budget if voters reject a proposed budget a second time.

Board members Catherine Wega, Christine Swailes, Sherri Newell, Larry Schuler, Patrick Musto, Ed Dudick and Susan Allen supported the plan with Gary Youngblood and Kristin Pitarra voting against it. The three-year ConnectED grant has a value of $432,000.

In addition, there are three candidates for three available Board of Education seats.

The new inter-local agreement is a fusion of both proposals that would see the City and L.P.S each contribute a little over a million dollars from their budget per year. Also vying for a seat on the board are newcomers Katrina Talbot Bratge and Denise A. Szarek.

"Doing so would allow you as a board and administration to address these pressing concerns and give you time as a board to look at alternative plans to save the $1 million that closing a school would put back into the general fund", he said. The proposed overall budget is $12,232,212.

"We were very impressed with the high quality of the initial candidates we interviewed this week, making this a hard decision", Board Chairman Dr. James Smith said.
