In a News Journal article on May 14, 2019 (School Board Election Day), Delaware VOTE411 Coordinator Kim Wells is quoted as follows: 

My one vote makes so little difference in who’s going to be President, but my one little vote might actually decide a school board election. One reason to care is that your vote matters more because fewer people are voting.

Wells' statement turned out to be somewhat prophetic. In her home school district of Appoquinimink, a mere two votes separated the winner from the next highest challenger. 

Below are the unofficial results of the school board elections state-wide (as of 5/15/2019, per the Department of Elections in each county).
