Early voting for the Tisbury town election was held on Thursday and 277 voters went to the polls, according to town clerk Hillary Conklin.
In a strange twist, that’s precisely the number of voters who went to the special town meeting on Sunday to approve a $55 million Proposition 2 1/2 debt exclusion to pay for the renovation and addition at the Tisbury School. That question is on the ballot and must pass by a simple majority for the money to be borrowed.
Voters are also considering a $5 million Proposition 2 1/2 debt exclusion to pay for road projects.
There is one contested race on the ballot. Incumbent select board chair Jim Rogers is facing a challenge by Roy Cutrer.
Polls will open again on Tuesday at 12 noon and will close at 8 pm when the votes will be tallied.
