School vote a record breaker for passing budgets and low turnout

School vote a record breaker for passing budgets and low turnout


In the first break from New Jersey’s traditional spring school elections, just 70 districts went to the polls on Tuesdays, these holdouts from a switch to November hearing resounding approval for their budgets — at least from the tiny fraction that actually voted.

Voters in 63 of the 70 districts deciding on annual budgets gave approval, a 90 percent passing rate that was highest in recorded history for the state. Across New Jersey, close to 60 percent of all voters sided with their local budgets, according to preliminary figures.  (Mooney, NJ Spotlight)
