Voters didn’t just vote for mayors and alderman yesterday.
Several ballot initiatives were also passed around the state.
Two similar measures in Manchester and Dover sought to change how the tax cap is calculated in those cities, and give slightly more freedom to elected officials to raise funds.
The measure passed in Manchester but was defeated in Dover.
Meanwhile in Concord, voters passed two charter amendments.
The first gives control of the school board, which had been in the hands of the legislature, back to the municipality.
