Ketchikan Gateway Borough voters elected former Ketchikan School Board Member Stephen Bradford to another three-year term on the board, with incumbent Nicole Anderson and newcomer Keenan Sanderson coming in second and third place, respectively, for the ballots counted on Tuesday.
Three 3-year seats are available in the School Board election.
But with 447 ballots that will not be counted until Monday, the race remained too close to call to name the two other winners at press time Tuesday.
Bradford received 1,090 votes, the most of all five candidates and enough to guarantee that regardless of how the remaining 447 ballots are tallied, he will remain in the top three.
Anderson got 949 votes — more than 150 more than Sanderson, but not enough to mathematically guarantee that she will remain on the board after the borough canvass board tallies the remaining votes on Monday.
Sanderson received 787 votes, closely followed by a tie for last place between former Board Member Tom Heutte and returning candidate Ali Ginter, who both received 748 votes.
The borough canvass board will meet on Monday at 9 a.m. to review the 447 absentee, special needs and questioned ballots to decide which will be counted in the final results. The winners of Tuesday's election will fill the seats currently held by Anderson, Board President Kim Hodne and Board Member Doug Gregg.
