El Dorado Hills Community Services District Director Bill Vandegrift has edged out closest challenger Chuck Hammond.

The final vote count released by the El Dorado County Elections Department Monday evening has Vandegrift 20 votes ahead for the third open board seat.

County Registrar of Voters Bill Schultz told Village Life  Tuesday morning all votes are now counted and, “What you see is what you get.” However, Schultz said, he will pay special attention to the manual sampling done for two close local races — the EDHCSD board seat and an El Dorado Union High School District board seat.

“It’s been my practice to check those really close (races),” Schultz said.

Once the manual tally is complete Schultz will certify the Nov. 2 general election results. He hopes to have everything wrapped up Friday evening.

Six candidates and three write-ins competed for the three open EDHCSD board seats. In addition to Vandegrift, voters chose incumbent Tony Rogozinzki and former CSD general manager Wayne Lowery.
