Polls are open in Tisbury today for the annual town election. Voters will elect a new selectman and have a final say on spending for wastewater and school improvement projects.

Polls opened at noon and close at 8 p.m. in the emergency services facility for the annual town election. Early Tuesday afternoon, turnout was light, with about 80 people voting before 1 p.m.

The selectman’s race tops the ballot. Two businessmen are vying for a three-year term on the board of selectmen: Seth Gambino and Jeff Kristal (interviews appear separately).

 On Spring street, both candidates waved campaign signs and talked with voters.

There are two other contested races.

Incumbent assessor Angela Cywinski is facing a challenge from David Dandridge.

Lynne Fraker, Nora Nevin and Nancy Lee Weaver are all seeking a one-year term on the Martha’s Vineyard Land Bank commission.

Longtime school committee member Colleen McAndrews is not running for reelection; Michael Watts is running unopposed to take her seat.

Voters will also consider three ballot questions to exempt spending from Proposition 2 1/2, the state tax cap. All correspond to articles that were approved at the annual town meeting April 9.

• Question one asks voters to exempt the bond debt for a $650,000 wastewater project that includes infrastructure improvements and the development of a comprehensive management plan.

• Question two seeks to exempt the debt for borrowing $400,000 to hire an owner’s project manager and an architect for a new elementary school renovation and addition project.

• Question three asks voters to allow the town to exceed the tax cap by $297,000 to pay for Tisbury’s share of a feasibility study at the regional high school.

On Tuesday Mike Unstiengz brought his daughter Ellie, age five, with him to vote.

“Just to watch democracy in progress,” he said. “We will always have a choice.”
