Three candidates — Serafino Nolletti, Jay Mullins and B.J. Picklesimer — all received extra votes following the findings, but the results remained the same.
The initial election results in the race for Logan Mayor were:
• Serafino Nolletti received 184 votes in District 39 and 100 votes in district 36 for a total of 284. Nolletti received an extra vote from the canvas for a total of 285.
• Guy Miller received 94 votes in District 39 and 14 votes in District 36 for a total of 108 votes.
• Darrell Jones received 12 votes in District 39 and 4 votes in District 36 for a total of 16 votes.
There was no Republican candidate so Nolletti will serve as mayor for another term.
On the city council race:

The new council will consist of Mullins, Muncy, Allie, Willis and Lee.
On the Democratic Executive Committee, Glen Dingess received 66 votes in District 36 and George Kemp received 143 in District 39.
A little more than 400 people voted in the two districts where around 1,000 voters are registered.
At the canvas, all the provisional ballots were opened and examined. Provisional ballots are ballots where a voter cannot be found initially on the roll books, but is allowed to vote anyway.
When the early voting ballots were opened, the first had a Wilkinson home address listed and could not be found registered in either precinct. Debbie Bragg a representative of the Logan County Clerk’s Office told council members Dave Steele, Don Browning, Greg Gick and Tom Fink that they had to decided whether it could be counted or not based on those facts. Councilman Don Browning made the motion to throw it out.
The second early provisional ballot was someone who had registered as a Republican but was not registered to vote in either District 39 or 36 and was also thrown out.
A total of eight provisional votes cast on Tuesday were disposed of, most for not being registered in either district with a few being voters who lived outside the city and voted in old districts.
The council agreed to certify the votes and declared the results which would become official in 24 hours. The books were then taken to the Logan County County Clerk’s office.
Outgoing council members were in good humor and Greg Glick asked other council members to sign his final $22 paycheck which was not cashed. Police Chief E.K. Harper gave him a pink ink pen to get the signatures.
“Can I keep this?” Glick quipped to the laughter of the council.
