Voters in the Guthrie school board election did not turned out in big numbers, but all the votes proved to be valuable as the Ward 2 position was decided by six votes.

Guthrie SchoolsAccording to the Logan County Election Board, out of the 558 votes cast, Terry Pennington received 282 votes or 50.5 percent while the incumbent and current school board President Jody Walker received 276 votes or 49.5 percent.

The election board will certify the results on Friday.

Voters were seen casting their vote as the snow fell Tuesday and election officials say the weather could have hampered a few voters from getting out and voting.

Of the 17 precincts, three of those did not collect any votes while other precincts reported votes of four, two and one. The largest precinct collected 108 votes.

Walker collected nine more votes in the early voting period (50-41) and received six additional votes in the absentee mail ballots (37-31).
