It could become the deciding vote in the dead heat contest between two Springfield school board candidates.
An absentee ballot arrived by mail Wednesday from a voter in school board subdistrict 5, where candidates Donna Moore and Katharine Eastvold finished in an exact tie after Tuesday’s voting.
There are still four other outstanding ballots that could yet be returned.
If they are postmarked on or before April 8th… the day before the election… they will also be counted.
But none of those votes will be tallied or revealed until a two-week waiting period ends on April 23rd.
