LONG ISLAND, NY (WCBS 880) –  It’s back to the voting booth for four out of 124 Long Island school districts on Tuesday.

Residents in Locust Valley, Oyster Bay East Norwich, Seaford and Westbury will hold re-votes Tuesday on revised education budgets.

Seaford and Westbury are considered middle class districts while Locust Valley and Oyster Bay East Norwich are among the wealthiest on Long Island.

The budget failed to pass in those districts in a vote on May 17.

In the meantime, a contingency plan or “austerity budget,” will go into effect if voters again choose to reject the revised spending plans.
