Voter turnout in Clarence set a record. Lines of voters were extensive throughout the day. Budgets were also rejected in Niagara-Wheatfield, Lewiston-Porter, Alden, Wilson and Bemus Point.

The margin of defeat in Niagara-Wheatfield was by a mere three votes.

WBFO's Jay Moran interview talked with Timothy Kremer of the New York State School Boards Association about the results of Tuesday's budget votes.
