So the final recount for Town Council ended up with the same tally of 25 votes. And on a different note did anyone attend any of the local impeachment protests?

Currently Ranuko Soll is last with 3861, Susan Hunter with 3909, Nancy Oates with 3922 and current council elect Tai Huynh with 3946 votes according to WCHL with all precincts reporting (but not late mailed absentee ballots nor provisional votes.) Note there is less than a hundred votes among them. Jessica Anderson, Amy Ryan and Michael Parker came in 1st, 2nd and 3rd. These are the numbers from Orange and Durham Board of Elections. Remember  Chapel Hill is in both counties.

election day turnout

Margaret and I just cycled to Kings Mill Precinct polling place. At 9:30 AM we were voters 35 and 36. No one was there passing out campaign literature. Historically this precinct has one of the highest turn out rates. We offered our IDs but it turns out you don't have to show IDs to vote until 2020.

 

2019 CHCCS School Board Election

A neighbor shared some info on the Chapel Hill Carrboro School Board Election.

   1.  Two school board candidates have withdrawn (Tortola and Huerta-Bapat); therefore only five are now running for four seats. 

    2.  Here you can watch informative short video intros for each of them:
