Provisional Ballot Likely Gives Edge To Kierbow In BOE Race

At this point, it appears that Carroll County firefighter Clayton Kierbow will be the newest member of the Carroll County Board of Education, after a single provisional ballot gave him a 190-189 edge over Jessie Strickland in Tuesday's Special Election Run-Off Election..

Elections officials are quick to point out that the count is "unofficial at this time," but should be confirmed by this Friday.

Kierbow is expected to fill the vacant Ward-4 seat on the BOE, which was left open back in October of 2016 when Denise Pate resigned.

Only 379 of the ward's 7121 eligible voters cast ballots for this race.
