Election Day turned into Election Week for local residents tracking the results of Measure N and the Los Altos School District Board of Trustees race.

After a weeklong topsy-turvy ride, Measure N, the district’s $150 million bond, ultimately reached its 55 percent threshold for passage and voters elected incumbent Tamara Logan and newcomers Sangeeth Peruri and Vladimir Ivanovic to the board.
