A little more than 500 voters in Holliston went to the polls this week and sent a new person to the Planning Board and rejected a ballot question, according to Elizabeth Greendale, the town clerk.

Nikki Borman bested Rachelle Finn, 234 to 209, to win a single, two-year Planning Board seat to fill a vacancy.

Voters also rejected a ballot question asking whether or not the town should exempt the first $100,000 valuation of commercials and industrial property from the Community Preservation Act surcharge. The vote was 252 voting “no” and 190 voting “yes.” Another 61 people left the ballot blank.

Also, in a vacant Water Commissioner position race, Jared Adams received seven write-in votes while Richard Chartland received three votes.

Overall, 503 voters participated.
