240v Power to 2 Thermostats

Hi All,

My first post and for good reason...I am totally stumped. I am running a dedicated 240v 20amp line to Box 1 (contains tstat 1). Tstat 1 then runs to baseboard 1. The line then runs to box 2 which has tstat 2 and runs a 2nd baseboard. I just need to know if I wired it correctly. I am getting some wired voltage at baseboard 1 when breaker is on but tstat is off. I attached a diagram as well (sorry if itís messy). Any help is greatly appreciated.

turns out I canít figure out how to attach a photo.

If you are using two wire thermostats....... combine all white wires together.
Just the blacks will go on the stat.

What type of stat and what type of weird voltages? Is it a two pole stat or a single pole stat?
