Meanwhile, in the Patoka School Board election with the absentee ballots added have resulted in the election of Kurtis Belcher with 308 votes and Dennis Cain, Senior with 217 votes. Jeremy Landreth did not win a seat with 209 votes. Misty Cain automatically won a seat because she was the only one running to represent a different township.
Marion County Clerk Steve Fox says nothing will happen with the tie in the unofficial results until the ballots are canvassed. He notes absentee ballots post marked by April ninth that arrive by April 23rd can still be counted. He adds there are a few provisional ballots that also need to be ruled upon. Fox says there could also be changes in some other results where there is only a few vote difference.
Fox says final results won't be available until after the vote canvas is complete on April 30th. He reports unofficial write in results should be available on Thursday.
