Official election results released for City of Quesnel

Two transcription errors were found, which did not affect candidate rankings

The City of Quesnel’s chief election officer has now released the city’s official election results and assent vote results.

The numbers include totals from all general voting, advance voting, special opportunity voting and mail-in ballots.

The official results show two transcription errors from the preliminary results. These errors did not change the candidates’ rankings, however.

Votes for Tony Goulet were initially counted at 888, but the official number is 882. And votes for Fritz Wyssen were originally counted at 542 but the official count is 534.

City of Quesnel communications clerk Teann Ingram says after the preliminary results are announced, elections officials do an audit of the count papers, which allows them to see any errors and correct them for the official results, which were announced this morning (Oct. 22) at 11:37 a.m.

The official results, in order of highest votes received, are:

Mayor – elected by acclamation

SIMPSON, Bob

ELLIOTT, Scott – 1,417

VIK, Mitch – 1,230
