The special election in the City of Bowman is now officially over, and a winner has been announced.
Up for grabs during the special election was an opportunity to finish out the remainder of former Councilwoman Pauline Siegler’s seat, who resigned her position at the end of 2013 due to health issues.
Running in the election was former Bowman City Mayor Pamela Johnson and Scott Harpold, a name some may remember from November’s election when he was running for one of three available council seats at the time.
Polls closed Tuesday evening at 7:00pm at the Bowman Community Center where election voting was being held.
The final results saw Scott Harpold take in 71 votes (71.7%) to Pamela Johnson’s 28 votes (28.3%).
Only 99 ballots were cast in the special election, which includes early absentee voting, coming to a total voter turnout of 19.8% of the city’s nearly 500 registered voters.
Harpold will officially take over as a Councilmember after he is sworn in.
