Riverview School Board tie could end up decided by lot

If an apparent tie in vote totals between two candidates for the Riverview School Board holds up, who wins the seat could end up decided by a draw, district administrator John Gendron explained today.

In Tuesday’s election to fill two school board seats, candidate Mary K. Vozel received the most votes, 263. The other two candidates — Chris Willkomm and Bert A. Christensen — both received 252 votes in the complete unofficial totals.

First off, the district has to wait until Friday to see if any absentee ballots postmarked by April 1 show up to change the results, Gendron explained. After Friday, the canvassing board will certify results. If there is still a tie, who wins the seat will be decided by drawing lots.
