Polls open 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. today for Capital School District referendum

DOVER — After five-plus months of discussion, residents within Capital School District boundaries will vote Tuesday on three phases of a nearly $115.67 million referendum.

The “Straight As for Capital Students” campaign asks voters to approve adding and enhancing two middle schools, shifting Central Middle School into an elementary school and approving added operational revenue.

The referendum is divided into three phases, and separate “Yes” or “No” votes will be made individually on each.

Voting runs from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. today. Polling locations include:

• William Henry Middle School, 65 Carver Road, Dover.

• Hartly Elementary School, 2617 Arthursville Road, Hartly.

• South Dover Elementary School, 955 South State Street, Dover.

• Towne Point Elementary School, 629 Buckson Drive, Dover.

Voting eligibility requirements include:

• Live in Capital School District.

• At least 18 years old.

• United States citizen.

• Able to show proof of identification at the polling place (a driver’s license, state of Delaware identification card or a bill addressed to your current residence, such as a credit card or utility bill.)

The last Capital referendum was brought before voters in 2005.

More information on the referendum is available at capital.k12.de.us/referendum or by calling 672-1500.

Voting results will be available online tonight at elections.delaware.gov and delawarestatenews.net.
