School District Election Results for March 10, 2020

By Muriel Bristol | March 14, 2019

Milton had the second part of its annual School District election (the first being the Deliberative Session), on Tuesday, March 10, 2020.

Voter attendance of 813 was lighter than last year’s 1,047. One might suppose that Coronavirus concerns played a role.

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