Elections Tuesday for some N.J. school districts

    Residents in some New Jersey school districts will vote Tuesday on school budgets and school board members.

    But because of a change in the law, the elections are not what they once were.
    The majority of schools have quickly moved school elections to November. Under a new law, doing so spares them from public votes on their budget plans so long as they keep tax increases under a 2 percent cap.

    Only 73 districts will put their spending plans to votes on Tuesday.

    Poll hours vary by district.
