Brook Baker's slim lead over Josh Welden for the ward 1 seat on the North Platte city council stands, Election Clerk Rebecca Rossell announced Friday. Rossell supervised a non-partisan canvassing board that counted provisional ballots and double-checked the previous count, as required by state law.
Unofficially, Baker held a 21 vote lead when the first votes were counted. After the canvassing board met, he officially held a 23 vote lead.
Baker initially received 921 votes and Welden had 900. After the review, Baker had 946 and Welden 923.
