A recount vote for two candidates vying for Wallace School Board remained the same.
At election time, only one vote separated the two candidates and a recount was held in Lincoln County by the election clerks and canvassing boards on Friday, Nov. 16.
The outcome was the same—Votes were recounted Friday with Lila Koop receiving 228 votes while Kenny Ogier got 227 in the race for a third seat on the board.
The Wallace School District included parts of Perkins, Lincoln and Hayes counties.
Other members elected to the board include Kristi Griffiths who received 357 votes and Cindy Christensen who received 281. There was one write-in.
