Unopposed board candidate gets no votes in Greenland

A Greenland School Board member who ran unopposed for her seat received no votes in Tuesday's election and therefore wasn't re-elected, according to Washington County Clerk Becky Lewallen.

One vote shy

Trish Morris isn’t the first Washington County school board candidate to lose her election despite running unopposed. Earl Hunton and Owen McAdoo lost their bids for seats in 2011 on the Lincoln and West Fork boards, respectively, because they failed to garner one vote.
