Voters will go to the polls Tuesday in several municipal and school district elections, including a three-part bond issue in Stillwater worth $35 million.

The first part of the bond issue is $20 million for a boardwalk and youth sports complex at Boomer Lake. The second part is $7.5 million to relocate a fire station and double the police department's vehicle fleet. The last part is $7.5 million for road and bridge projects.

Voters will decide on each part of the bond issue separately.
