LEWES, Del. - Polls are still open in Lewes as residents decide on a potential new elementary school.
Cape Henlopen Schools are looking for their fifth elementary school, one that would fit 720 students. Also, school officials are looking to add classrooms to several middle schools.
On average, each taxpayer in the area would be assessed a $59 increase paid over the next three years.
Officials say there is a need, but as we've seen in the past few weeks, Delaware residents have voted down similar referendums with tax increases.
"For the first time in our districts history, we are over 5,000 students this year and we really have a lack of space," said superintendent Bob Fulton. "We have modular classrooms around everyone of our buildings except for our high school."
Polls are open until 8PM. For residents there's still time left to vote with locations at Cape Henlopen High, Mariner Middle and Rehoboth Elementary.
