No changes have been noted in a tight USD 383 school board race.
Curt Herrman and Frank Beer remained 33 votes apart Monday morning after no new votes came in to the Riley and Pottawatomie County Clerk’s Offices Friday for either candidate. Advance ballots by mail could be accepted through Friday, per state statute.
As it stands ahead of the canvass, Herrman appears to have retained his spot on the board for a fifth term, holding a 2,818 to 2,785 advantage over Beer. The others elected last week included Katie Allen, Kristin Brighton and Greg Hoyt. The results are unofficial.
Both counties will hold the election canvass on Thursday, certifying the 2023 election. As many as 123 provisional ballots still need to be counted in Riley County.
