Ann Arbor School Board Election Results

Adam HollierAdam Hollier

I asked one of my colleagues yesterday whether she had voted. She said she did not vote in uncontested elections.

There were two incumbents, Glenn Nelson and Irene Patalan, running for the two four-year terms. They were both elected.

And there were two relative newcomers (Adam Hollier ran for school board in 2008 and Ravi Nigam ran for school board in 2002) running for the one two-year term. Adam Hollier had announced in April that he was withdrawing his candidacy. His announcement came well after the February 13th deadline for his name to be removed from the ballot. Two names on the ballot, only one active candidate. Does that make the election uncontested?
