Cranbury voters approved the school board budget and elected a newcomer to the Board of Education on Tuesday, according to unofficial election results.

Incumbents Nicole Pormilli and Lynne Schwarz, the board president, were re-elected. Schwarz received 273 votes and Promilli received 264 votes. 

The school budget also passed with 318 votes. The budget calls for a 1 percent tax increase, which is under the 2 percent state mandated cap. This translates to $6,237.64 on the average assessed residential home, $605,143, in cranbury.

There was a 16.97 percent turnout among the 2710 registered voters.
