There was no opposition for the three seats on the Dunn board.
Incumbents Bob Dalman, David Johnson, and Susan Pepelnjak (treasurer) each received 543 to 546 votes. This suggests that of the approximate 650 ballots cast, several dozen did not bother marking the ballot for the unopposed town board seats. Four people wrote in names for town board, though the county auditor’s office didn’t list the names.
