Chilmark voters approved two school spending questions and re-elected a selectman at the annual town election Wednesday.

With no contested races and the pandemic a complicating factor, voter turnout was light this year at the Chilmark Community Center. A total of 158 ballots were cast, about 16 per cent of 980 registered voters. But with 84 ballots cast early, either through early voting or absentee, only 74 voters actually came to the polls Wednesday.

Voters approved a $169,136 override question to pay the town’s share of window replacement at the Chilmark School, 128-24. They also approved a $5,216 override for the town’s share of replacing the dust collection system at the regional high school, 136-16.

The town’s share of total education spending at the high school and the Up-Island regional school districts is $3.6 million, up $390,000 or 11 per cent from last year. At the annual town meeting Monday, voters approved a $10.7 million town operating budget, up about five per cent over last year.

Running unopposed, incumbent selectman Warren Doty was re-elected to an eighth term, with 141 votes.

Elected without contest were:

Elizabeth Oliver, board of assessors, 149; Matthew Poole, board of health, 141; Janet Weidner, library trustee, 150; Marshall Carroll and Robert Hannemann, finance committee, 144 and 132, respectively; Ann Wallace, planning board, 143; Judith Flanders, cemetery commissioner, 149; Keith Emin, tree warden, 147.

Keith Emin was also elected as a write-in to the positions of fence viewer and surveyor of wood, lumber and bark. There were no candidates on the ballot. He received six and eight write-in votes, respectively.
