Aldermanic and trustee races in Iroquois County and school board contests will need to be officially canvassed before winners are declared from Tuesday's Consolidated Election.
Some results were determined by just a single vote, others by a very few, and some tied. Absentee ballots, still out there, could be factors, according to County Clerk Lisa Fancher.
Two candidates for Watseka School District #9 tied for the final seat in a 4-seat contest. Seven candidates were on the ballot Tuesday.
Incumbent board member Crystal Blair and Toby Schippert each received 313 votes. Kirk McTaggart was top vote-getter (482), Bob Burd (427) and Michael Kaeb (349) will win seats.
The top four candidates in the Central #4 District Yuesday were Troy Meier (273), Kevin Hack (257), Sarah Shoven (224) and Lisa Behrens (212).
