A number of rural municipalities in the southeast corner of the province needed to have elections on Nov. 9.
In the RM of Souris Valley No. 7, Garry Kuntz defeated David Pattyson 31-24 in the race to be the new councillor for Division 5.
In the RM of Reciprocity No. 32, Alan Arthur was re-elected as reeve, defeating Douglas McWhirter 116-18.
Two elections were needed in the RM of Moose Creek No. 33. In the race for reeve, Kelvin Luedtke received 91 votes to defeat incumbent reeve Howard Sloan by one vote. Kimberley Dietze was re-elected as the councillor for Division 3, defeating Tim Freitag 37-29.
In the Rural Municipality of Browning No. 34, Richard Brokop defeated Katia Bigney 25-9, and was re-elected as the councillor for Division 1.
One of the busiest elections was in the RM of Cymri No. 36, with three races. Joe Vilcu, who was the incumbent reeve, was elected to another term, defeating Keith Eldstrom.
Greg Wallin was elected as the new councillor for Division 1, defeating incumbent Harvey Schindel, while Darrel Druck is the new councillor for Division 5 after defeating Cody Martin.
(Vote totals for the RM of Cymri were not available).
In the RM of Antler No. 61, Bernard Bauche was re-elected as the reeve, defeating Jocelyn Hainsworth 163-114, while David Hutton was re-elected as the councillor for Division 5 after beating Darren Sandgaard 34-24.
