The Howard County Board of Elections completed its canvass of the remaining absentee votes Friday afternoon.
According to Board of Elections Director Guy Mickley, Board of Education Write-in candidate Mavourene Robinson received just 92 votes in what proved to be a quixotic campaign. This is less than one vote per precinct.
A total of 385,781 votes were cast in the Board of Education races. A total of 1,685 write-in votes were received, but other than the 92 votes for Robinson, the remaining votes were invalid with many being for fictitious characters.
194,283 under votes were recorded where the voter chose less than four candidates, and 804 ballots contained over votes.
Vicky Cutroneo and Chao Wu were the top two vote winners and will get 4-year terms with 58,426 and 54,254 votes respectively. Jen Mallo and Sabina Taj will get 2-year terms with 53,766 for Mallo and 51,842 for Taj.
As a comparison of how far behind Robinson was, Danny Mackey came in eighth place with 36,923 votes.
