Voters elected three Republicans and one Democrat to the Portsmouth School Committee, subject to mail ballots yet to be counted.
Only two incumbents—Marjorie Levesque and Cynthia Perrotti—ran for re-election. This was actually Perrotti's first time running for office, and she appears to be the largest vote-getter in the group.
Perrotti was appointed to the School Committee by the Town Council in May 2009. The appointment was made to fill a vacancy on the committee, which was left by Jamie R. B. Heaney.
Only four of the seven School Committee seats were open this year. Each term will last four years. Unofficial winners are shown below in bold.CANDIDATE VOTES David Dunn CROSTON (D) 2,835
