    When: June 16 deadline for mailed-in ballots.
    The voting process: This will be an all-absentee vote, and the ballots will be mailed home to registered voters. Voting only takes about five minutes. You will vote yes or no for the proposed 2020-21 budget, which is $199,995,618. This budget is below the state-mandated tax cap for taxpayers. It calls for a 1 percent tax levy increase, and would represent a 1.97 percent increase from the 2019-20 budget. Middletown's tax cap levy maximum is 3.66 percent for 2020-21, and this proposed budget falls well below that.
