            It looks like there will be an expanded and renovated high school in Kodiak's future. The bond measure to fund it is holding a moderate lead after yesterday's elections.

            Proposition 1, which would authorize the Kodiak Island Borough to sell up to 76-million-dollars in bonds to finance the expansion, reconstruction and renovation of Kodiak High School was passing by a margin of 167 votes. The unofficial tally shows 1,128 Yes votes to 961 No votes. However, there are 201 absentee ballots and an unknown number of questioned ballots still outstanding, which could swing the outcome.

            Meanwhile, Proposition 2, which would have authorized the sale of 12-point-5-million in additional bonds for renovation work on school and borough buildings, is failing with 1,091 No votes to 905 Yes votes, a margin of 186.

            Speaking of schools, the only two candidates for the board of education were incumbents, and both ran unopposed. Norm Wooten received 1,528 votes, and Petal Ruch received 1,404.

            On the Assembly, the two incumbents are comfortably ahead, though one is being challenged. Chris Lynch seems on her way to re-election with 1,105 votes, while fellow incumbent Jerrol Friend has 922. But just 114 votes behind him is challenger Dave King with 808 votes, well within the number of votes that have yet to be counted. Steve Branson has 681 votes. The top two vote-getters will be seated to three-year terms.

            The election will be certified after absentee and questioned ballots are counted.

            This is Municipal Election Day on Kodiak Island. Polls opened at 7 a.m. and will remain open until 8 p.m.

            On the ballot for city residents is the race for Kodiak mayor, between incumbent Carolyn Floyd and challenger Charlie Davidson. Also in the city is a two-man race for a one-year city council seat between John Whiddon and Mike Woodruff. Two incumbents, Josie Rosales and Gabriel Saravia are running unopposed for re-election to a pair of three-year terms. There is one ballot initiative city voters will face: it is whether to change city code to remove the roadblock to union organization among city employees.

            On the borough ballot are two bonding questions regarding the school district. One is for maintenance of schools and the other is for construction of a new Kodiak High School.

            Incumbents Petal Ruch and Norm Wooten are running unopposed for re-election to the Kodiak Island Borough School Board.

            There are four candidates vying for two seats up for grabs on the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly. Incumbents Jerrol Friend and Chris Lynch are being challenged by Dave King and Steve Branson.

            There are, as usual, many open seats on numerous service district boards, which vary depending on which part of town one votes in.

            KMXT will have updates tonight after the results start coming in.
