WARWICK — While there are no contested races in Monday’s town election, voters will weigh in on a ballot question authorizing a Proposition 2½ debt exclusion to fund the purchase of a new fire engine.

Polls will be open at Town Hall from noon to 8 p.m.

The ballot question comes following a May 6 Annual Town Meeting in which residents authorized the transfer of $200,000 from the stabilization fund and the borrowing of $480,000 to purchase a new fire engine. Approval is needed at both Town Meeting and the ballot box. Fire Chief Joe Larson previously explained the new fire engine will replace one that is 35 years old.

The following candidates are on the ballot:

■Selectboard, three-year term — Alan Genovese, incumbent.

■Assessor, three-year term — Keith Ross, incumbent.

■Board of Health, three-year term — Ann Kendall, incumbent.

■Constable, three-year term — Bruce Kilhart, incumbent.
