Voters in seven of the 501 school districts that held elections across New Jersey this week also faced ballot questions related to their schools. Four of those questions were defeated, while three won approval. Three of the four questions that were defeated were related to additional school spending.
New Jersey school boards are being told they need to act quickly if they want to move school elections from April to November as allowed under a new state law. Boards or other municipal governing bodies must pass a resolution to make the change.
