School district elections take place today, May 19. The polls are open from noon until 9 p.m. The polling place for everyone in Hudson is John L. Edwards Primary School, 360 State Street. Check here to learn the polling sites for voters elsewhere in the Hudson City School District.
HCSD voters are asked to approve or reject the proposed $45,477,121 budget, which Peter Rice, president of the Board of Education, celebrates as representing "the lowest tax levy increase our district has had," but in fact, at 1.75 percent, is the maximum allowed by the state tax cap. Voters will also vote for two candidates who are "vying" for two vacant seats on the Board of Education: William J. Kappel and Sage Carter.
You can learn about the two candidates here and here.
