EDISON - New Jersey school budgets and school board candidates will be up for votes in a rare Wednesday election.
Fourteen towns will ask voters to raise property taxes beyond the state's new 2 percent tax cap. The towns holding votes are: Bordentown Township, Brick, Carneys Point, Hardwick, Jackson, Lambertville, Lumberton, Mansfield, Medford, Mount Holly, Northvale, Oxford, Plumsted and Shrewsbury.
Even though the state has the highest average property taxes in the U.S., the majority of budget plans are routinely accepted. But last year, nearly 60 percent were rejected as Gov. Chris Christie campaigned against them.
The school elections were moved to Wednesday so they wouldn't conflict with Passover this year.
News 12 New Jersey will have results when the polls close at 9 p.m. tomorrow.
