Canvassing Board member Carol Walker checks all the early ballots on Election Day to ensure authenticity. Almost 900 early ballots went out to voters in Kimball County, and each one required a signature from an employee of the County Clerk's office. Only 22 of nearly 900 early voting ballots were not returned. Top photo: Election officials, canvassing board members and poll workers helped count votes into the evening at the county courthouse.

Unofficial results of the 2020 election have been tabulated and recorded by the Kimball County Canvassing Board.

Locally, Kimball City Council and Kimball School Board have drawn the most attention with a variety of candidates.

Winning four-year seats on the city council are newcomer Gabriel Ingram and incumbent Kim Baliman.

Six individuals were vying for three school board seats. Albert Hargreaves, Chauncey Pedersen and Lanny Little were the top vote-getters for school board, with those positions holding four year terms.

In a unique set of circumstances, the fourth place vote-getter, Tom O'Brien, will be sworn into office at the Nov. 9 school board meeting to complete former board member Lynn Vogel's term. Vogel and her husband have moved out of the area.
