KIUC received 7,145 ballots in this election.
While there were three available director slots to fill, not all voters chose to exercise all three votes on their ballot; therefore, the number of votes may not equal the total number of ballots received.
The KIUC Management with the assistance of the California-based Merriman River Group announced the official tally late this afternoon.
The newly-elected board members will be inaugurated on Tuesday, March 27 at 1:30 p.m. in the KIUC Main Conference Room, located at 4463 Pahee Street in Lihue.
Following the inauguration, the board will hold its regularly-scheduled meeting of the Board of Directors at 3 p.m.
