While nothing is official at the time of this post (around 11:00pm on the 18th), Mix 103.7 has announced Blake as the winner in the Mayoral race (by a considerable margin if you ask me) and the winners in the Ward 1 are: Allen, Germain, Kirschner, Meagher, Scott & Thomas.
No matter the outcome, congratulations to all the candidates for showing such a strong field and for making it difficult for voters to make their choice.
Looking for the election results? The RMWB site has it broken down by Wards and by the Mayoral race: Election Results
But What About Voter Participation?
Reflection is needed on the voter participation – I’m looking forward to seeing the final numbers and how they stack up against the different census data for the region.
What are your thoughts? Are you happy with the turnout, sad, couldn’t be bothered either way? Drop a comment down below or let me know on Twitter through @myoilsands.
