Incumbents Bill Stokes and Aleck Dambacher easily won re-election to the three-member Reclamation District 348 board of directors on Tuesday.
Precinct officer Sharon Stokes said she didn’t have exact numbers with her, but Stokes had more than 5,000 votes, while Dambacher had almost 5,000 votes. Challenger Clayton Henke had about 400 votes, she said.
The election was based on land ownership. Each voter was allowed one vote for each acre of land owned in the district. Forty-four ballots were cast.
