Chilmark voters go to the polls Tuesday


Chilmark voters go to the polls Tuesday to elect town officers and decide three proposition 2.5 questions totaling $411,000.

Voters will be asked to spend $300,000 on the Up Island Regional School budget, $80,000 for repairs to the Chilmark School, and $31,000 on a new police cruiser.

There are no electoral contests. With no names on the ballot, two seats on the finance commission and one seat on the cemetery commission will be filled by write-in candidates. The town election coincides with the special U.S. senate primary election. Polls will be open from 7 am to 8 pm at the Chilmark Community Center.
