Vote totals

The reason the numbers do not match-up is because there were two trustee positions that were not on the ballot. Those positions (Tom Neild and Janice Brassard) are not up for re-election until May 2013. That meant two of the largest voting districts in BISD did not cast ballots for those races on school board trustees. However, everyone in BISD was able to vote on the proposition to change the representative form or government on the BISD board from seven single-member districts to five single-member districts with two at-large positions. That measure past with 56 percent of the vote.
I hope this clarifies things. If you have any further questions, feel free to ask or contact me anytime.

vote numbers

Why is the total vote 10298 on BISD board member election but the total vote on the prop was 19315? Who went and didn't vote for anyone except the prop.
