With all precincts in District 2 reporting, Jason Johnson pulled ahead of Charlotte Maxey to unseat incumbent District 2 school board member Jennifer Merritt, who had been appointed by the school board to fill David Vaden's unexpired term earlier this year. As this was a special election, Johnson will take the seat as soon as he is sworn in.
Johnson won the seat with 39 percent of the vote. Merritt came in second with 31 percent and Maxey placed a very close third with 30 percent of the vote. Only eight votes separated Merritt and Maxey.
