LIVINGSTON - Eight school districts in six New Jersey counties will hold elections on Tuesday on whether to pay for school upgrades and repairs.

Voters will decide if the districts should foot the bills for repairs, new athletic fields and expansions. If approved, the plans would add 14 new classrooms to five elementary schools.

In Livingston, school officials say their district has not lost a vote in more than 30 years.

Many of the people News 12 New Jersey spoke with say they are for the upgrades that the districts have proposed. Some parents say that some classrooms are so crowded that they have to send their child to schools across town in order to find an open desk.
