School Budget Election Sept. 4

Don’t forget about the special school budget election Sept. 4. The unusual vote is to accept extra money made available through state legislative decisions, and will not affect Portland property taxpayers, but it must be approved by voters. More information in Superintendent Emmanuel Caulk’s column here.

If you need an absentee ballot or need to find your polling place, visit the city’s Elections and Voter Registration Web page.
