At Town Election on Tuesday, October 26, 2021, Westwood voters appear to have approved a debt exclusion override to allow a property tax increase to fund the construction of a new, consolidated Hanlon-Deerfield school.

At Special Town Meeting on October 18, 2021, residents approved funding for the new school.  

Following that vote, a majority "yes" vote was needed this Tuesday in order to allow funding for the school to be collected by property taxes in excess of the limit set by Proposition 2 1/2.  

On Tuesday, residents have indicated approval, with a majority voting "yes" in every precinct, as shown by the chart of unofficial results below. Overall, 1,815 voted in favor, and 667 voted against.

Unofficial Town Election results as posted on the Town of Westwood's web page at 10:15 p.m. on October 26, 2021.
