Election results are canvassed; only small changes

April 6, 2007

Douglas County Commissioners canvassed the vote from Tuesday's general election Friday, making the results official. There were no changes in the outcomes, but there were a few additional votes for some candidates.

The Baldwin City Council's top three vote getters stayed the same with the same amount of votes: incumbent Tony Brown, 288; Ken Wagner, 249; and incumbent Ted Brecheisen Jr., 243. Incumbent Nancy Brown received a provisional ballot to increase her vote total to 218. Kenny Niehoff (198) and Jennifer Hayes (121) had their numbers stay the same. There were three write-in votes for a total of 1,320 votes.

In the lone race for Baldwin School Board, the winner Joshua Mihesuah and opponent Teresa Arnold both received a provisional vote to move their totals to 402 and 320, respectively. There were two write-in votes there for a total of 724 votes.

Two incumbent school board members who ran unopposed also gained a provisional vote. Alison Bauer's total moved to 601 and Scott Lauridsen went to 557. The third incumbent, Blaine Cone, stayed at 571.

For Lauridsen's position, there were 27 write-in votes, 12 in Cone's and nine in Bauer's. The school board totals won't be official until out of county votes are added in.

The Signal will have a story in next Thursday's issue on the write-in candidates that received votes in the election.
