MIDLAND, TX (KWES) - We have a new development in the Midland I.S.D. District 4 School Board Race.

School officials said the race between Rachel Stone and John Kennedy is a "tie."

The initial count on Election Day had Rachel Stone as the winner by four votes.

But the Election Day totals didn't include the provisional and absentee ballots.

We're told this will initiate an automatic recount but it is unknown when the count will be.

It's unclear who the actual winner is at this time as the Midland County Elections Administrator is working with the Texas Attorney General's Office to determine how a winner will be announced.

School officials said they will be meeting Wednesday morning to discuss the timeline of the election and they will canvass the votes. They will then meet with the candidates on Thursday.

Officials said some of the options for the candidates include: the possibility of a second election in December or the candidates can choose to do a coin toss to determine the winner.
