Vote Tally Confirms Jones as Mayor 

It's official. After a week of counting, Richmond Registrar Kirk Showalter confirms that Dwight C. Jones won six of nine districts to secure the mayoral election.

Election officials spent the better part of a week counting an influx of absentee ballots in the hotly contested Nov. 4 election. The city registrar's office was inundated with 12,000 pre-election day ballots, and they not only had to be counted, but assigned districts where the voters lived. The office also experienced technical problems that held up the count.

Jones won six of nine districts, and edged out runner-up Bill Pantele, who won the 1st, 2nd and 3rd districts, in the popular vote 34,513 to 29,1433.
