The Pima County Elections Department has completed a final tally of votes from the recent election. Now it's up to the Oro Valley Town Council to certify the results.
The official vote canvass is the first item on the agenda for the Oro Valley Town Council's Wednesday, June 2 meeting.
In the final count, Satish Hiremath beat out Mike Zinkin in the contest to be mayor by a margin of 30 votes.
In addition to the more than 14,700 votes cast for the two mayoral candidates, 1,297 voters did not vote for either candidate. Instead, that section of the ballot was left blank.
Council candidates Joe Hornat and Lou Waters also prevailed in the three-way race for two open council seats. The two candidates won a total of 15,799 votes. There were 2,983 ballots left blank in the vote for council.
The council is scheduled to swear in the new council members at the meeting. In addition to Hiremath, Hornat and Waters, Mary Snider won the third open seat during the primary vote in March after receiving more than 50 percent of the vote.
