BRANDON — Voters in all eight Rutland Northeast towns on Tuesday not only approved the proposed school governance unification plans, they also voted for candidates to create one, 13-member Otter Valley Unified Union School Board and a four-member Barstow District Board to oversee the new school districts.

While the number of board representatives a town receives is based on population, there are also four “at-large” board seats weighted equally to the town seats.

Residents in every town voted on each of the board seats.
