Changes are coming to the powerful Imperial Irrigation District.

The dust is still settling on the 2020 election, with some votes still to be counted, but after one incumbent on the board of directors fell in the primary, a second is losing in the general. The board likely will see two new directors seated, reshaping the direction of an agency that delivers both water and electricity to a wide swathe of Southern California.

In Division 2, 24-year-old JB Hamby bounced long-time Director Bruce Kuhn in the primary and was trouncing fellow challenger Ryan Childers by 31 percentage points as of Wednesday. Farther to the south in Division 4, Director Erik Ortega was likely staring down a loss in his reelection bid, as challenger Javier Gonzalez had 5,365 votes to his 4,872 votes with all precincts partially reporting.
