Voter turnout as of noon today was 7.3 percent. Of the 6,554 eligible voters on the list, 481 people voted.
Since voters rejected the first , the Region 14 Board of Education proposed a budget that is $387,748 less than the initial proposal.
The budget that failed at the May 8 referendum, at $31,205,513, featured a 3.17 percent increase or $959,484, over the 2011-12 budget of $30,246,029.
The new Region 14 budget before voters today — Wednesday, June 6 — is at $30,817,765 and features a $571,736 increase, or 1.89 percent, over the 2011-12 budget of $30,246,029.
"I hope every registered voter exercises his or her civic responsibility and votes in tomorrow’s referendum," said Region 14 Superintendent Jody Goeler in an e-mailed statement to Woodbury-Middlebury Patch.
