bmg-small[ Updated: Final results below.] After weeks of rhetoric and tough talk about spending in the local school district, the fate of local spending on education has been decided by voters. The polls closed at 9 p.m. With the Lakewood, NJ, school budget continuously ballooning over the past few years, Township voters were given the opportunity to make their voices heard in today’s school board election and they did.

  1. Are you sure this is from all the districts? I cannot believe only 538 people voted in the entire Lakewood. This is probably from 1 or 2 districts. Stay tuned for further results.

  2. there were 538 total votes cast! I voted for 4 people. Assuming everyony who voted picked 4 names, that means only 137 people showed up!!!!!!!!!!
