Minot write-ins not counted by canvassing board

The Ward County canvassing board determined Monday that the vote spread in Minot’s mayoral race wasn’t great enough to warrant delineating the write-in votes.

Chuck Barney won the mayoral race 997 to 879. All the 879 votes were write-in. Kevin Mehrer ran a late write-in campaign, although others also received write-in votes. Because it wasn’t necessary to determine who received write-in votes to declare a winner, the canvassing board chose not to spend time on tallying the votes, Ward County Auditor Devra Smestad said.

The canvassing board certified election results after recounting a council race in each Kenmare, Makoti and Surrey. The unofficial results were as close as one vote difference. Recounts did not reverse any of the unofficial results.
