Some residents voted for fewer than three people, resulting in a total of 41 votes not cast. Only five votes were disqualified this year: Two votes for young men who are not yet eligible to serve on the Council (under-age), and one rain casualty - a wet ballot (three blank votes) that was stuck to the underside of a valid ballot.
The Election Committee congratulates the winning candidates and thanks the residents of Martin's Additions for the excellent turn-out. Thank you to the shops, artists, volunteers, and community groups for their generous, helpful participation on this Election Day.
We especially commend the VMA staff (Matt, Tina, and Wayne) for their exceptionally helpful and diligent work in support of all the Election Committee's mailings, notices, meetings, and logistics.
Respectfully submitted by the 2018 Martin's Additions Election Committee: Marty Langelan, Lauren Shweder Biel, Diane Everts, Naomi Naierman, Susan Post, and Jesse Tampio
