For the two seats of three years on the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly, Scott Smiley won 1079 votes and Matt Van Daele won 1042 votes. They were running against Monique Lewis, who got 685 votes, and there were 148 write-ins.

Dan Rohrer ran unopposed for Borough Mayor.

Also up for grabs was a Kodiak Island Borough School District Board of Education seat of three years. Julie Cain Hill won with 1152 votes and her competitor, Kelly Bell, got 467 votes.

One advisory question was on the ballot regarding whether or not the Kodiak Island Borough and the City of Kodiak should consider consolidating, and the Kodiak community voted yes on that.

As for the Kodiak City municipal election, current councilmen Charlie Davidson and John Whiddon ran unopposed for two seats of three years on the Kodiak City Council.

One result still up in the air is Proposition One, which asks voters whether the city should recognize the right of its public employees to organize for the purpose of collective bargaining. While 369 people voted yes and 353 voted no, there are 119 outstanding ballots, which is enough to sway the outcome. They will be tallied next Wednesday at the election canvass.
