Questions?
Town Clerk Debra Lane, 207-799-7665.

On the state ballot, voters will decided on a single bond issue; Cape Elizabeth voters will be asked to validate the $24.9 million school budget adopted by the Town Council on May 15. [news article]; and to fill an unexpired term on the Portland Water District Board of Trustees.

As in previous years, the school budget validation includes an optional, advisory question on whether the budget is too high, too low, or acceptable.

All election activities, including voter registration, will move to the polls on Election Day.

Any questions should be directed to Town Clerk Debra Lane, 207-799-7665.
