BREAKING: Aspen City Election Results

Elise Thatcher

UPDATE - 11:21pm

Unofficial final results - Steve Skadron will keep his seat as Mayor against his second challenge from Torre. Skadron takes the win by about 400 votes.  

At the council table, fellow incumbent Adam Frisch will keep his position. But, there could be a runoff between Bert Myrin and Mick Ireland for the second open seat. Myrin is 109 votes ahead, but needs at least 12 more votes to make the threshold for winning the second seat. As of Tuesday night, there are 23 unresolved ballots, so until those are cleared up, officials won't know if a runoff race is needed. Aspen City Attorney Jim True and City Clerk Linda Manning say they hope to have an answer on the ballots-- and the runoff question-- on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Referendum One has passed.
