Sunday's updated election results show that Vladimir Ivanovic has overtaken John Swan in the Los Altos School District election, according to the Santa Clara County Registrar of Voters.
Candidates in the school board race are competing for three seats up for re-election, and two of those three incumbents opted not to seek re-election. The new results, as of Sunday evening, show that Ivanovic, along with incumbent Tamara Logan and Covington parent Sangeeth Peruri, could take the three seats in this years' election.
Initial counts showed only a 30-vote difference between Swan, a former real estate CEO and Bullis Charter School parent, and Ivanovich, a Gardner Bullis parent.
As of Saturday's election results, however, Ivanovic has pulled ahead with 18.2 percent of the vote (5,733 votes) to Swan's 16.4 percent (5,160 votes).
Swan and Ivanovic, along with Bullis Charter School parent Martha McClatchie, have all been within 120 votes of securing the third place spot in the tight election race. Two seats on the board appear to be comfortably held by Logan, who has 25.7 percent of the vote, and Peruri, who has 23.3 percent of the vote.
If the results hold, neither of the candidates who are Bullis Charter School parents will take a seat on the district school board.
Despite what appears to be a clear victory, Logan said the election has been very competitive compared to when she ran for the board in previous years. Logan, along with candidates and district officials, spent the election at First and Main Sports Lounge in Los Altos for an election party event.
There was some anxiety among election party goers, according to Logan and Peruri, when they found out that Measure N, the Los Altos School District bond measure, was struggling to reach the 55 percent of the vote needed to pass.
