Along with the U.S. Senate and Maine State Primaries, Bangor residents will be voting on whether or not they want to approve the Bangor School Department budget for the upcoming school year:
REFERENDUM QUESTION #1
Do you favor approving the Bangor School Department budget for the upcoming school year that was adopted at the latest regional school unit budget meeting and that includes locally raised funds that exceed the required local contribution as described in the Essential Programs and Services Funding Act?
A YES vote allows additional funds to be raised for K-12 public education.
A NO vote means additional funds cannot be raised for K-12 public education.
Early voting is taking place now until Thursday, June 7th, 8am-6pm at the Bangor Civic Center. Or vote on election day, Tuesday, June 12th, 7am-8pm - same place!
