Evergreen Park and Recreation District is proud to announce preliminary results for the election of three members to the District’s Board of Directors. Betsy Hays received 1,161 votes, Peter Eggers received 1,023 votes, and Mary McGhee received 508 votes. These three were the top vote-getters in a field of eight candidates.
Here is how the votes were cast:

Buchanan Park and Recreation Center: 707 In-Person Votes
Absentee Ballots: 594 Received
UOCAVA Ballots: 1 Received
Total Ballots Cast: 1,673
Official results will be announced May 17, due to requirements of the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act, which mandates a later deadline to receive absentee ballots from uniformed and overseas citizens eligible to vote in the Board election. After the official results have been certified on May 17, candidates will be notified if a recount is required.
The three newly elected Board members will be sworn in at the regular Board meeting scheduled for 5 PM on May 31st. The two current Board members who did not run in this election are President Monty Estis and Vice President Don Rosenthal, who were elected in 2020 and whose terms continue until May 2023.
