It was not until late this afternoon due to a recount that the official results of today's election were released.  A mandatory recount had been ordered, due to the tight races between two 4th grade candidates and 6th grade candidates.  A member of the election committee said it was a very tight race.

Charwomen Kasi Meyer of the election committee said, “What a close race. We had ties in 6th grade and 4th grade.”
