Residents headed out Tuesday to vote in districts across Long Island, where 124 school systems are proposing tax hikes averaging just 2.6 percent. That's the lowest regional increase since all districts began same-day voting in 1996.
Many school leaders and others predicted easy wins for budgets, at least in the 107 districts that are staying within their tax-levy limits.
