Portland residents are going to the polls Tuesday to vote on a proposed $96.3 million budget for the city’s public schools.

The proposed fiscal year 2015 budget would comprise $76.4 million paid through property taxes, $16 million from state subsidies and $3.9 million from other revenue sources. The City Council endorsed the schools budget last week, thereby sending it to voters for consideration.

The total school budget of $101.6 million — which includes $5.3 million not subject to voter approval — represents a 3.3 percent increase over the fiscal year 2014 budget.

Polls will be open until 8 p.m. All polling locations will be open.

Some city residents may have new polling locations because of recent redistricting prompted by population changes during the past decade. For a map of voting districts, go to http://me-portland.civicplus.com/DocumentCenter/View/4069
