Two school board races in Sacramento County are still too close to call.
Natomas Unified incumbent Susan Heredia is less than 400 votes ahead of her closest challenger, Ryan Herche, in a hotly contested race for three seats, according to Sacramento County election results released this afternoon. Heredia had 4,726 votes and Herche had 4,349. Trailing behind Herche are Scott Dosick with 4,114 votes, Karen Bernal with 3,817 votes and Bruce Roberts with 3,520 votes.
Ballots are still being counted and more results are expected to be released next week.
In Natomas Unified's 2010 board election, it took 17 days to confirm a winner after two candidates were separated by 20 votes.
Pam Costa has clearly won one of the three seats on the San Juan Unified school board, with 50,875 votes in an at-large election.
But things get a little tighter in the race for the last two seats, with about 2,000 votes dividing each candidate. Saul Hernandez, with 32,042 votes, and incumbent Lucinda Luttgen, with 30,180 votes, are currently in the running for the seats. But Mike McKibbin who has 28,275 votes or Mark Lennon with 27,302 could still come back to win when all the ballots are counted.
