With the machine and vote-by-mail ballots tallied the race for the third seat on the Hoboken school board appeared to be dead-even between incumbent Rose Marie Markle and newcomer John Madigan.

This race is probably heading for a recount or could be determined by provisional or emergency ballots used at the polls. All else fails, there could be a runoff.
