Heavy turnout marked the day as Wayland voters went to the polls to vote decide races for selectman, school committee and a $1.86 million Proposition 2 1/2 tax override.

Lydia Howe, 39, voted for the override at Wayland Middle School.

"I think we can squeeze our personal needs a bit for the next generation," the mother of two children, 4 and 14, said. "I believe in our children and for better services in Wayland."

Charles Adam, who voted against the override, disagreed.

"I pay too many taxes in this town already," he said.
