It’s proof positive that every vote counts.
Sangamon County election officials will open and count a single mail-in absentee ballot today from school board subdistrict 5.
If the vote is valid, it will break a tie between candidates Katharine Eastvold and Donna Moore.
But it won’t be the last word on the race.
Both candidates have indicated they plan to seek a recount if the vote doesn’t go their way.
