The results from last week’s special mayoral election are now official: Ken Koelsch is still Juneau’s new mayor.
The city’s canvass board certified the results Tuesday. The board announced that Koelsch won the mayor’s seat with a total of 4,709 votes, about 58 percent of the 8,155 ballots cast. His opponent, Karen Crane, won 3,377 votes. There were 53 write-ins.
The total voter turnout was 33.3 percent, meaning that a third of Juneau’s registered voters cast a ballot in the special election. That number is up from October’s municipal election, which also included a mayoral race. Less than a quarter of the city’s registered voters participated in that election.
Koelsch will be sworn in Monday at 6 p.m. in Assembly Chambers in City Hall.
