“Until we find out the results of that one machine, I’d rather not comment,” said Kaelin, last night.
In Tuesday’s primary, a voting machine malfunction left a cliff hanger in Glenolden which may not be resolved until sometime today at the earliest, according to officials. Eight candidates were competing for four four year seats on Interboro School Board.
It is unclear if long-time incumbent John Kaelin was defeated by a newcomer.
In Region 2, incumbent Kaelin, who has almost three decades experience on the school board, faced challenger Edward Murphy. Both candidates were cross filed.
Unofficial results indicate that Murphy won both ballots with a total of 189 votes to Kaelin’s 135. These numbers, however, do not include a voting station at St. George’s Church. Officials last night predicted the official numbers would not be availble until the technical issues were resolved.
