Local Canvassing Boards will be meeting this week to count the remaining absentee, question and special ballots for the 2013 municipal elections.
There are still several races which could be decided this week: Soldotna City Council Seat B saw just 23 votes separating Meggean Bos (the unofficial winner) and Dave Carey, and the Kenai Mayoral Race has just 32 votes between incumbent Pat Porter and challenger Bob Molloy.
Kenai City Clerk Sandra Modigh explains…
Modigh: “The election is October 1st. Our canvas board meets on October 8th to review absentee and question ballots, and then I report the results of the election to council on October 16th. At the November 6 meeting is when new members will be seated and sworn in and we’ll elect a Vice Mayor.”
