Leduc County releases unofficial election results

Leduc County residents in six of the seven electoral districts cast their ballots today as part of the 2017 municipal election.

All polling stations have reported their vote counts to the returning officer and the following individuals have each been elected to serve a four-year term on Leduc County council:

  • Kelly-Lynn Lewis was elected to represent division 2 with 45.7 per cent of the divisions’ votes; she received 349 votes of 763.
  • Kelly Vandenberghe was elected to represent division 3 with 50.5 per cent of the divisions’ votes; he received 243 votes of 481.
  • Larry Wanchuk was elected to represent division 4 with 54.2 per cent of the divisions’ votes; he received 208 votes of 384.
  • Tanni Doblanko was re-elected to represent division 5 with 63.1 per cent of the divisions’ votes; she received 291 votes of 461.
  • Glenn Belozer was re-elected to represent division 6 with 59.2 per cent of the divisions’ votes; he received 267 votes of 451.
  • Raymond Scobie was elected to represent division 7 with 69.6 per cent of the divisions’ votes; he received 286 votes of 411.

Rick Smith (incumbent) was acclaimed on Sept. 18 to represent division 1.

Unofficial results indicate a jump in voter turnout with 2,951 of the 8,357, or 35.3 per cent, of eligible voters in divisions two through seven casting a ballot. This is up from 33.7-per-cent voter turnout in the last municipal election in 2013.

We are pleased to see voter turnout on the rise in Leduc County, and are hopeful residents will continue to demonstrate enthusiasm and interest in local affairs well into the future.

Gale Miller, returning officer

Elected officials will be sworn in at Leduc County’s organizational meeting scheduled for Oct. 24 at 9 a.m. At this meeting, council will appoint a mayor to serve a one-year term.
