Preliminary results are in for the Mat-Su Borough election.
Across the borough, voter turnout was almost exactly 11%, with just over 7,000 votes cast. In the Upper Valley, voter turnout varied. In Talkeetna, 13% of eligible voters turned out on Tuesday. In Susitna, turnout was 9.5%, and in Trapper Creek just over 6% of eligible voters voted.
Areawide elections were held for two school board seats. Tiffany Scott ran unopposed or Seat E, and Ole Larson ran unopposed for Seat D. Both candidates received more than 5,000 votes. In Borough Assembly District 4 in Wasilla, incumbent Steve Colligan ran unopposed, receiving 730 votes. The only contested race is for Assembly District 5. In that race, Dan Mayfield leads Bill Kendig by 293 votes, with just under 1,000 total votes cast.
Both borough ballot measures, one to redraw district lines to match state voting precincts and the other to increase property tax exemptions for senior citizens and disabled veterans, passed by comfortable margins.
