The Riverhead Central School District, by far the largest school district on the East End, is putting up a $121.2 million budget before voters on Tuesday, up 3.1 percent, or $3.6 million, from its 2013-14 budget. The tax levy is increasing by 2 percent.

Five candidates are vying for three seats on the Riverhead School Board. Newcomers Gregory Fischer, Lori Hulse and Laurie Downs are running against incumbents Kimberly Ligon and Gregory Miller.

Voters will go to polls in their local voting districts between 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. These polling places correspond to the elementary school district individual property owners are in. More information on the polling places and general Riverhead budget information is online here. Local polling is a recent change for the school, which had historically held the vote at Riverhead High School.
