The results of the Nov. 8 election are through votes tallied on Nov. 14, with 80,000 countywide still not counted by the Registrar of Voters.

The other two seats up for election are closer.

In Zone 1, incumbent Jennifer Jeffries is ahead with 54% of the vote. She has 1,504 votes compared to 1,284 for challenger Sydney Lay.

In Zone 3, appointed incumbent William Leach has 54% of the votes counted. He is ahead of Margie Mosavi, 1,618 to 1,392.

The Registrar of Voters must complete and finalize results by Dec. 8. The new trustees are slated to be sworn in at their Dec. 14 board meeting.
