Mayer, Martin officially on Nov. 5 ballot for Chimacum Schools seat

CHIMACUM — Kristina Mayer and Steve Martin’s names will officially appear on the Nov. 5 ballot after the certification of a ballot recount for the District 3 Chimacum School Board position.

The recount was certified Friday afternoon, after the recount was conducted Wednesday by Jefferson County election coordinators Betty Johnson and Quinn Grewell.

Mayer amassed 1,361 votes (53.14 percent), of the overall 2,561 votes cast for the four candidates for the seat, not counting write-ins, under and over votes.

Martin amassed 504 (19.68 percent), edging out candidate Gary Frogner by two votes after the count of ballots was so close it prompted a recount.

Three of the five Chimacum School Board positions will be on the Nov. 5 ballot. The District 3 position was the only race on the primary ballot because it had more than two candidates.

Ballots for the Nov. 5 election will be mailed to registered voters Oct. 16. Ballots will be mailed to registered voters oversees or in the military Sept. 20, the day before the state deadline of Sept. 21, Grewell said.
