FARMINGTON -- Members of the city council approved a canvass of the 2011 primary election during a council meeting Tuesday, which included negating four votes for people who showed up to vote without the proper identification.
Those four votes, which weren't counted, potentially could have made a difference, as Raymond Walsh lost by four votes in a bid to be one of the six candidates remaining in the race for three council seats. But ultimately, nothing changed in the race standings.
The final tally shows Walsh garnered 83 votes, while Justin LeCheminant had 87 votes.
Two members of the planning commission, Nelsen Michaelson and Jim Young, led the vote tally with 461 and 414 votes, respectively, followed by incumbent Cory Ritz, who got 373 votes. Other qualifying candidates included Dustin Siler with 312 votes, Tyler Turner with 159 and LeCheminant.
The general election is scheduled for Nov. 8.
The final figures show a turnout of 7.19 percent of registered city voters.
