In a special town election on Tuesday, Marblehead residents voted in favor of two override questions in addition to casting their ballots for the special state Senate election, where Democrat Ed Markey defeated Republican newcomer Gabriel Gomez.

Markey will fill the seat left vacant by Secretary of State John Kerry.

Nearly 70 percent of voters supported the first override question to fund a project to repair and restore the Abbott Hall clocktower, which will cost about $2.5 million.

The second override question to fund remediation and restoration on Green Street saw support from about 57 percent of voters.

In the Senate election 57 percent of the vote went to markey, while Gomez took 43 percent.

A total of 5,722 residents cast their ballots in the state Senate election.
