DURHAM – Only 642 voters cast their ballots during local elections on Tuesday. That is a drastic difference from the 7,387 ballots that were cast during the 2012 Presidential election.

Julian Smith was re-elected to the town council with 478 votes. He will be joined by Katherine “Kitty” Marple (507) and Katherine Bubar (487).

A total of 1,588 votes were cast throughout the Oyster River Cooperative School District, which includes the towns of Durham, Lee and Madbury.  Sarah Farwell (1027) and Denise Day (901) beat out Michael Williams (597) for two seats on the school board.

School district voters approved a collective bargaining agreement for the Oyster River Teacher’s Guild by a vote of 1064-482, a proposal for additions and renovations to the cafeteria at Moharimet Elementary School by a vote of 1107-448 and a 10-year tuition agreement between the Oyster River School District and the Barrington School District by a vote of 1291-244.
