Lottery Determines 186 Board Ballot Placement
First come, first on the ballot. But when there are simultaneous petitions, a lottery is held to decide ballot placement. That's what happened for those wishing to serve on the Springfield District 186 school board.
In the lottery drawing for the April 9 consolidation election, Lisa Funderburg will be at the top of the ballot followed by Teresa Jones in Subdistrict 1.
In Subdistrict 7, Charles "Chuck" Flamini will be listed first, followed by Tom Shafer.Gary Pierce will be listed third. Pierce did not file simultaneously, and therefore was not included in the lottery proceedings.
