Two newcomers were elected to the Guilford County Board of Education according to unofficial election results. 

Democratic candidate Alan Sherouse won the at-large seat with more than 100,000 votes. His Republican opponent, Demetria Carter, received just under 82,000 votes. 

In District 2, Republican Candidate Crissy Pratt won the seat against Democratic candidate Amanda Cook with about 58% of the vote. 

Seats in the three remaining districts up for election went to the incumbent candidates. 

In District 4, Republican incumbent Linda Welborn won the seat against Democratic candidate Deon Clark by just over 1,000 votes. 

Democratic incumbent Khem Irby won in District 6 over her Republican opponent Tim Andrew with about 52% of the vote. 

In District 8, Democratic incumbent Deena Hayes-Greene won the seat with 11,466 votes. She ran unopposed in this race. 

The four remaining odd-numbered districts did not have elections this year, though one of those board seats now stands to change.

School Board Member Pat Tillman ran and won a seat on the Board of Commissioners in this election, leaving a vacancy in District 3. 

According to the Board of Education’s bylaws, vacancies are filled by a majority vote of the remaining members.
