Eight additional ballots were either "cured" or received prior to the April 13 deadline. Elections supervisor Rene Loy Maas says three votes were cast in the Delta municipal election, two in Orchard City and three in Paonia.
Delta council candidates Kevin Carlson and Jay Stooksberry each picked up a vote, but the 22-vote spread remains in Carlson's favor. Neither box was marked in the third ballot received for Delta.
The Paonia ballots broke a tie between Barry Pennell and Samira Hart. Pennell is elected to a four-year term; Hart will serve two years.
The two additional ballots did not affect the outcome in Orchard City.
