Voter turnout for Tuesday’s city and school board election was 13.7 percent in Leavenworth County.

Voter turnout for Tuesday’s city and school board election was 13.7 percent in Leavenworth County.

This slightly exceeded the 12 percent turnout County Clerk Janet Klasinski was predicting going into the election. Klasinski serves as the county election officer.

Voters who headed to the polls Tuesday selected representatives for local city governments and school boards.

A number of races in the county were competitive while others featured candidates who were running unopposed.

“I thought it was successful,” Klasinski said of Tuesday’s election.

Results from the election are unofficial until county commissioners meet Monday as the Board of Canvassers and review the results.

Klasinski does not believe the outcome of any of the races will be changed if votes from provisional ballots are added to the totals.

Some seats in local city governments were decided Tuesday by write-in votes because not enough people had filed as candidates.

That was the case for two seats on the Easton City Council. Five positions on the City Council were up for election this year. But only three candidates, Russ Gildner, James A. Brown and Nathaniel Jackson, filed as candidates.

These three candidates were elected to seats on the City Council. It appears Shannan O’Donnell-Hadley, who received 19 write-in votes, also was elected to the City Council as was Sunshine Trader, who received 14 write-in votes, according to Klasinski.

In Linwood, there were three seats on the City Council up for election, but no one filed to be on the ballot.

“There were several write-ins,” Klasinski said.

She said it appears Kimberly Renshaw, who received 25 write-in votes, David Denham, who received 22 write-in votes, and James Blancarte, who received at least 17 write-in votes, were elected to the three positions.
