Voters in the Greenburgh school district are turning out in larger numbers than last year, the district clerk said.
By 4 p.m. more than 588 residents had cast their votes compared to just 383 at the same time last year, said Ivy Kraus, the district clerk.
Voters are deciding on a $58.6 million budget and a slate of 10 Board of Education candidates, including three incumbents and seven challengers.
“I hope it means people came out to support the budget,” said Trustee Charles Bronz, who is seeking re-election.
Robert DeRight did, voting “yes” on the budget.
“I think too many people vote their own pocketbooks instead of supporting education,” the 73-year-old district resident said.
But Abe Abdallah voted “no,” saying students are not performing better despite escalating costs. He also voted for three challengers over the incumbents.
“They need to really look at cutting or improving,” the nine-year resident said.
