Fort Sumner voters filled three spots in their at-large school board vote Tuesday.

Incumbent Tom Wilton was elected to a second four-year term, while Ray Drake earned his first elected term after serving five months as an appointed member. Kerrilyn Webb, running for her first time, was chosen for the third open spot in the four-way race.

The top three vote-getters were seated. Drake was the top vote getter with 237, followed by Webb with 211 and Wilton with 196. They join a board that includes first-term members Cody West and Scot Stinnett. They will be sworn in at the March 14 school board meeting.

First-time candidate Dorie Tucker received 163 votes.
