Lori Witham and Rick Gilmore will fill the two open seats on the St. Joseph School District Board of Education.

Voters elected both candidates to the board in Tuesday's election.

Witham won with 3,295 votes or 29 percent of the vote. Gilmore took 23 percent of the vote with 2,593 votes cast in his favor.

Witham and Gilmore beat out four other candidates running for the seats left open after current board members Kappy Hodges and Lori Prussman stepped down after serving six year terms.

Witham and Gilmore will both serve three year terms.

The Buchanan County Clerk's Office reports more than 6,400 registered voters cast a ballot.

Tuesday we had overcast skies for much of the day across northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri until the afternoon when we cleared out across the area. We will see a few more clouds late tonight into tomorrow morning then have lots of sunshine along with hot and humid conditions.
