Voters in the Mt. Lake Public school district have elected three candidates to the school board.
Only two candidates filed for the three open four-year seats on the board. Incumbent Audi Nickel received 117 votes. Incumbent Matt Gohr received 112 votes.
The third open seat on the board was determined by a write-in vote. According to Mt. Lake Board Chairman Chad Pedersen, Chad Eken officially was the top write-in vote-getter, receiving 37 votes.
The results of the election will be canvassed at a special meeting this week. It will also be determined if Eken, as a write-in vote winner, will accept a position on the board. If he does not, the board has the option of appointing a person to the board to serve until the next election cycle, which would come in 2022.
