Portlanders: School budget vote TOMORROW

Portland voters will be asked to approve the Portland Public School System’s budget in a citywide referendum. Maine’s School Administrative Reorganization Law now requires all school districts to hold elections for approval of their budgets. The budget must be approved by a majority of voters.

Voters will be asked:

Do you favor approving the Portland School Budget for the upcoming school year that was adopted at the latest City Council budget meeting?

Detailed information about the Portland school budget may be found on the Portland Public Schools Web site at

All local polling places will be open from 7:00 AM to 8:00 PM. For more detailed information about where or how to vote, contact the City Clerk’s office at 874-8677 or visit their webpage at:

A “Yes” vote supports the budget.

Please vote and get out the vote for these two elections TOMORROW.
