Juneau’s municipal election results have been certified, solidifying the win for Mayor-elect Beth Weldon and three new assembly members.

The Canvass Review Board certified the vote Tuesday after reviewing more than 2,000 absentee ballots last week.

In total, 9,607 votes were cast in the Oct. 2 election.

Former assembly member Beth Weldon won the mayor’s race with a total of 4,553 votes.

In District 2, Michelle Bonnet Hale won a three-year seat and Wade Bryson a one-year seat.

Hale replaces Assembly member Jerry Nankervis, who opted not to run for re-election in favor of running for state House in the November general election.

Bryson takes Weldon’s former seat, which she resigned in August to run for mayor.

Carole Triem won a one-year areawide seat in the election. She replaces Norton Gregory, who also resigned his seat to run for mayor.

Incumbent Loren Jones ran unopposed for his District 1 seat.

Total voter turnout was 35.5 percent.

That’s the highest voter turnout since 2010.

The new mayor and three new assembly members will be sworn in at City Hall on Oct. 15.

They will also attend a training at City Hall on Saturday.

Current Assembly member Jesse Kiehl is running for Senate District Q on Nov. 6. His seat will also need to be filled if he wins.
