It may be some time before Denise Juneau learns if she’s been re-elected as Montana superintendent of public instruction.

Juneau is the first Native American woman to win a statewide election in U.S. history. She was challenged this year by Republican Sandy Welch.

The race is still too close to call and Yellowstone County is still counting votes. Elections officials hope to have the ballots counted by Thursday night.

Democrat Juneau is a member of the Mandan and Hidatsa tribes.

Welch will call for a recount if the final count is close enough.

Watch Missoulian.com for updates in the race.
