What's at stake?
Julia Lacey dropped out of the District 1 race on August 22, 2013 due to relocation outside of the district. Kimberly D'Angelo is the only active candidate in the race though Lacey's name will still appear on the ballot. If Lacey garners a majority of the vote on November 5, the board will consider the seat vacant and select a replacement. Incumbent Sandy R. Hayes is running unopposed for re-election to the District 4 seat. The District 5 seat only features newcomer Amy Cast as Banks filed for election but withdrew his name on May 20, 2013 to focus on his small business.

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages.
