Democrats maintain 6-2 edge on Michigan school board

 

November 9, 2020



Two Democrats won seats on the state board of education Tuesday, maintaining the party’s 6 to 2 edge on the panel that shapes Michigan’s learning standards and oversees the state education bureaucracy.

Ellen Cogen Lipton and Jason Strayhorn filled the two open seats on the eight-member board. Democrats have controlled the panel for most of the last two decades.

Lipton won 2,456,899 votes, or 24.5%, while Strayhorn earned 2,353,817 votes, or 23.5%, edging out their Republican challengers in a tight race. Rural Antrim County was the only county that hadn’t reported election results as of Thursday morning, but its votes won’t be enough to change the outcome.
