The Estherville Lincoln Central School Election saw 275 people cast ballots on Tuesday.

Unofficial elections results show that in the race to fill a vacant at-large position, incumbent Duane Schnell earned the spot with 154 votes or 58.56 percent. Fellow incumbent Michelle McCoy received 108 votes or 41.06 percent of the ballots cast.

ELC is moving from a seven-member board to a five-member board, which is the reason the two board members were both on the same ballot.

Meanwhile incumbent Jodie Greig received 233 votes for an uncontested at-large position.

ELC voters also approved two public measures on the ballot. A proposal to increase the school's voter-approved physical plant and equipment levy to 1:34, up from the current $1, passed 151 to 108 (68.3 percent to 41.7 percent).

Public measure C passed 183 to 78. The measure extends the statewide penny tax from 2019 to 2029.

In the Armstrong-Ringsted School District, challenger Travis Nielsen received 104 votes compared to 98 received by James Boyer in Director District 3.

In a pair of uncontested races, Jennifer Von Bank received 152 votes for an at-large position. Karen Ann Thackery received 141 votes for the Director District 2 position.

The Emmet County Board of supervisors will canvass the results on Friday.
