Light turnout for Estherville election
With no contested elections in Estherville, voter turnout was very light on Tuesday.
The Estherville City Council will have a new representative in Ward 2 though. Write-in candidate Julie Clark received 26 of the 36 votes cast in that precinct.
Current Ward 2 council member Terry Nelson did not seek re-election.
All results were unofficial until canvassed by the Emmet County board of Supervisors on Thursday.
For mayor, incumbent Kenny Billings was given the nod for a second term as he received 168 votes in an uncontested race. There were 10 write-in votes in the mayoral election.
Incumbent Larry W. Anderson received 166 votes for the at-large council seat
In Ward 3, incumbent David Seylar received 32 votes with just one write-in ballot.
In Ward 4, Ann Goebel received 17 votes with two write-in ballots
Candidates elected Tuesday will take office in January 2014.
