School District Election Results for March 12, 2019

By Muriel Bristol | March 17, 2019

Milton had the second part of its annual School District election (the first being the Deliberative Session), on Tuesday, March 12, 2019.

Only about one-third (32.4%) of the electorate chose to participate: 1047 / 3232 = 32.4%.

These results come from photographs of vote totals, which do not seem to be posted on the Town or School District websites.

The School District Clerk is pushing a recount: “I will be available at the Town Hall Friday (tomorrow) and Tuesday 3p-5p for anyone requesting a School District Recount” and “Yes, 10 signatures on an official recount request. Must be a registered voter, with a fee of $10.” Presumably, because you did not vote “correctly.” Come on, people, get in line.

School District offices appear first, followed by School District Warrant Articles. (Both are listed in the order of the percentages of votes received).

Chris Jacobs won the seat with 840 (80.2%) votes. He ran unopposed. “Scattering” received 3 (0.3%) votes. (He is also the incumbent Town Moderator).
