Justin Towery of Downs was the only candidate who filed for the open mayor seat in the City of Downs. However, it will be several days before the results are known.

There were a total of 207 votes cast in the mayor’s race. Towery received 69 votes or 33%. The other 2/3 of the votes were cast for “multiple” write in candidates according to Osborne County Clerk Vienna Janis.

Janis said that among the votes cast, there were a large number of provisional ballots which is the main reason for the delay in a result. A provisional ballot is used to record a vote when there are questions about a given voter’s eligibility for any of a few possible reasons.

When the Osborne County Commissioners meet on Monday next week they will “canvass” the election and make it official. At that time, determinations will be made as to which provisional ballots will be excepted, or not, depending on the determination of each individual voters eligibility.
