Absentee Ballots Put Montgomery School District's Full-Day Kindergarten Initiative Ahead by 12 Votes
By Barbara A. Preston | Posted November 9, 2022 - Updated November 16
Montgomery Township and Rocky Hill voters appear to have voted in favor of full day kindergarten by 12 votes, according to the most recent vote count as November 16. The new count includes absentee ballots. There are still an undisclosed number of provisional votes to count, so it is still too close to call this race.
