HOWLAND — Voters opted to add a new member to the Howland Board of Education while keeping two incumbents, according to incomplete and unofficial results from the Trumbull County Board of Elections.

Julie Altawil, 41, a political newcomer who said she ran for the board because she wanted to see change, took 20 percent of the vote.
