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.

Two elections were also needed in the RM of Moose Creek No. 63. In Division 3, Rick Degeer received 26 votes, defeating incumbent Paul Delalleau, who received 17. In Division 5, Jack Wilson received 22 votes to be re-elected, defeating Jessica Shirley, who had seven.

Perhaps the most interesting election was in the RM of Tecumseh No. 65. Incumbent Zandra Slater and challenger Dwight Shiels finished tied with 85 votes each. Slater won a tie-breaker when her name was drawn from a hat.

Elections decided by acclamation were released in the Nov. 4 edition of the Mercury, while results for the RM of Estevan election were in the Nov. 11 paper.
