It’s 100% official.

The Island County Auditor’s office certified the general election Tuesday, and with that, the Coupeville School Board has two new members.

It’s 99% official.

With the release of vote totals Friday afternoon, the Island County Auditor’s office has almost reached the end of its duties with the current election.

With the fourth update, 30,270 ballots have been counted, and the “estimated ballots left to count” sits at zero.

Now, all that remains is for the election to be certified Nov. 23.

All three Coupeville School Board races have been decided by a wide margin, guaranteeing no need for a recount.

That means Sherry Phay, who ran unopposed for a second term, will be joined on the board by Nancy Conard and Morgan White, Coupeville grads who handily defeated their opponents.

Current board members Christine Sears and Glenda Merwine were not up for reelection this time out.

The seats won by Conard and White were previously held by Kathleen Anderson and Venessa Matros, who both chose not to run again.

Anderson, who was board president, passed away in September.

 

Current numbers:

 

Sherry Phay — 2,974 votes (100%)

 

Nancy Conard — 3,350 (74.07%)
Paul Rempa — 1,173

 

Morgan White — 3,090 (68.91%)
Ward Sparacio — 1,394

Another day, another step closer.

The third release of vote totals by the Island County Auditor’s office show Morgan White, Nancy Conard, and Sherry Phay maintaining sizable leads in their bids to be elected to the Coupeville School Board.

There have been 25,460 ballots counted county-wide through Thursday night, with an estimated 3,800 left to go.

That second number remains in flux, as additional ballots with valid postmarks may still arrive.

Until they’re actually counted, it’s also not known how many of the remaining ballots will affect Central Whidbey races, or instead be from voters residing on North or South Whidbey.

With Coupeville’s school board races, Phay is running unopposed for a second term.

Conard and White stretched their leads by 361 and 346 votes, respectively, between Wednesday’s numbers and Thursday’s update.

 

Current numbers:

 

Sherry Phay — 2,764 votes (100%)

 

Nancy Conard — 3,091 (74.11%)
Paul Rempa — 1,080

 

Morgan White — 2,868 (69.39%)
Ward Sparacio — 1,265

Coupeville graduates Morgan White and Nancy Conard have large leads in the race for election to the school board.

Day two results reinforced day one.

The voters have spoken and Morgan White, Nancy Conard, and incumbent Sherry Phay are likely winners in the race for the Coupeville School Board.

The trio will join Christine Sears and Glenda Merwine.

Phay, who was running unopposed for a second term, has 2,158 votes as of Wednesday night’s second release of totals by the Island County Auditor’s office.

The other two races showcase Coupeville grads who have gone on to make major contributions in their hometown community.

White, a business owner and mother of two children attending Coupeville schools, leads businessman Ward Sparacio 2,207 to 950 votes.

Conard, who was town mayor for two decades, and also held multiple positions in the Coupeville school district, including Business Manager, is rolling against internet crank Paul Rempa.

Her opponent essentially vanished from the race after being called on the carpet publicly and privately for lies about his service (or lack thereof) with Central Whidbey Fire and Rescue.

Conard, who is helping raise her granddaughter, a freshman at Coupeville High School, is ahead 2,427 to 777.

White has won 69.91% of counted votes, with Conard sitting at 75.75%.

That’s a slight bump upwards from day one, when the duo stood at 69.44% and 75.51%, respectively.

There have been 20,887 ballots counted through Wednesday night, and the next update will be released Thursday, Nov. 4 at 6 PM.

A clean sweep, so far.

For the first time in its nearly 10-year history, Coupeville Sports issued political candidate endorsements, and all three of my selections are rolling to victory.

If things hold, Nancy Conard, Morgan White, and incumbent Sherry Phay will join Glenda Merwine and Christine Sears on the Coupeville School Board.

Phay was running unopposed for a second term, and has received 1,874 votes through the first release of vote totals Tuesday night by the Island County Auditor’s office.

The other two races feature Coupeville grads with distinguished resumes being embraced by local voters.

White, a mother of two and business owner who has been highly-active in Coupeville schools, leads Ward Sparacio 1,895-834.

Meanwhile, Conard, former long-time town mayor and Coupeville Schools business manager, is paddling internet troll Paul Rempa 2,100-681.

Conard has garnered 75.51% of votes tallied, while White has claimed 69.44%.

With the first release of numbers, 17,617 ballots have been counted, with an estimated 1,800 left to count.

The next update will be released Wednesday, Nov. 3 at 5 PM.
