The unofficial results for the Archuleta County coordinated election are in, with Lisl Keuning winning a seat on the Archuleta School District (ASD) Board of Education.

The results listed below will remain unofficial until Nov. 13 in compliance with state statute and to allow for any additional ballots to come in under the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA), as well as allowing voters to sign ballots that were received unsigned or with a signature discrepancy.

According to June Madrid, Archuleta County clerk and recorder, Nov. 12 is the last day to receive ballots from overseas and clear any signature discrepancies.

Official vote totals will be released no later than Friday, Nov. 13, Madrid explained.
