Voters in the Kenmore-Town of Tonawanda School District want multiple polling sites for their School Board elections and budget votes, new poll data shows.

Last May, residents leaving voting booths in the Ken-Ton district filled out voluntary exit polls, the results of which were tabulated by the district over the summer.

According to the exit poll results, Ken-Ton voters prefer the current three-site polling method -- at Kenmore East High School, Hoover Middle School, and the Philip Sheridan Building -- better than the old method of one polling site for the whole district, district
officials said.

The poll results showed 1,353 voters in favor of three sites, 970 in favor of one site, and 527 who gave no response, officials said.

District Clerk Karen Oliver said the three sites cost the district $4,441 each to run for the single polling day each year.
