DPS school board: Beyer files for runoff against incumbent Martin

Last night's runner up for school board District 4B, Natalie Beyer, has filed today with the Durham Board of Elections to request a runoff against incumbent Steve Martin. The runoff will be held Tuesday, June 22.

In order to win his seat, incumbent Martin was required to win at least 40 percent of the votes cast in the District 4B race, or the runner-up could request a rematch.

Martin earned just under 37 percent of the votes, while Beyer finished just behind with about 34 percent.

Despite serving nearly eight years on the school board already, this is really the first time Martin has experienced a competitive election. During his first two terms, he ran unopposed.

Board of Elections Deputy Director Michael Perry said Wednesday that the runoff had minimal costs to Durham taxpayers because every jurisdiction across the state already must hold a runoff election for other offices, including U.S. Senate.

Just like in the primaries and general elections, voters will have an opportunity to vote early. The Durham Board of Elections expects to announce early voting dates and times soon, Perry said. And of course, voters may show up on the runoff date, June 22, to vote on the actual day.
