HOBOKEN -- Preliminary results are in from the Hoboken elections. Provisional and absentee ballots may change close races.

Winners of the three school board seats:

Kluepfel 3,426

Mitchell 3,223

McAllister 3,498

Kids First wins all three.

Others:

Oland 2,513

Markevitch 2,844

Vazquez 2,488

Waiters 987

Public Question 1

To eliminate runoff elections

Yes 7,621

No 5,295

Question 2

To eliminate rent control when a current tenant leaves

No 6,975

Yes 6,444

This does not include absentee and provisional; these are close but "no" is considered the likely outcome right now.

Question 3

To move mayor/council elections from May to November

Yes 8,475

No 2,485

All of the candidates and answers supported by Mayor Dawn Zimmer were victorious, a positive sign for her when she runs for re-election next year.

Because of the question 3 vote, the current mayor and three council-at-large members will now extend their terms from next May to next November.
