(WLUK) -- Three Northeast Wisconsin school districts asked voters for more money Tuesday.

The Freedom Area School District has two questions on its referendum. One question asks voters for $66.7 million to build a new high school, renovate the elementary and intermediate/middle schools and make other improvements. The other question asks for $740,000 per year over a five-year span for operating costs for the new high school. According to the district, if both questions pass, the owner of a $100,000 house would pay $322 more per year in taxes between 2020 and 2025.

In Florence County, school leaders are asking for $1.25 million per year over three years for continuing operations and maintenance. According to the district, this would raise taxes by $53 per year for the owner of a $100,000 home.

The referendum passed in Green Lake County with 62 percent of voters say yes. Princeton schools asked voters for a revenue limit increase of $475,000 per year for five years. The district expects taxes to remain steady or decrease slightly.

The polls closed at 8:00 p.m.
