June 4th votes in Rapid City canvassed by City Council
RAPID CITY, S.D. – The final votes have been tallied from the June 4th municipal election.
State law requires that cities hold official meetings to canvass results within seven days of a municipal election.
Monday morning, the City Council held a special meeting to canvass the votes for Mayor, and each of the five wards. It was determined that Steve Allender has officially been voted into office for another term—this one being a four-year term.
The results for Wards 3 and 4 have not been officially announced yet. “We have a runoff election coming up and that may be tied into the July 1st seating of the council because the runoff election in the two wards is within that week time frame from when they get seated. But again, they will have to canvas those as well,” said Rapid City’s Communications Director, Darrell Shoemaker.
Based on the voter turnout for the mayoral election, approximately 83-hundred came out to vote in this past election.
