AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Maine residents are voting on five borrowing proposals totaling about $150 million that would pay for maintenance and improvements for roads, schools and armories.

A light turnout was anticipated for the bonds, the only measures on the statewide ballot Tuesday.

The biggest bond was a $100 million proposal for road and bridge projects. The others were $14 million to overhaul armories, $15.5 million to improve university facilities, $15.5 million for classroom improvements in community colleges and $4.5 million for a science building at Maine Maritime Academy.

There also were several local measures up for a vote, including the legalization of the possession of recreational amounts of marijuana in Portland and a South Portland ordinance aimed at preventing the flow of a thick type of crude oil to the city.
