Election 2014:

Results for the City of Port Alberni election are in. Results for Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District to come.

Mike Ruttan is leading the mayoral race in Port Alberni as the preliminary results have been announced. John Douglas is in second place with 370 and Cindy Solda in third with 247.

Denis Sauve leads all council candidates with 733 votes, followed by Dan Washington with 576, Ron Paulson with 522, Sharie Minions with 491, Chris Alemany with 463, Jack McLeman with 437.

Final results to follow.

The polls at Alberni Athletic Hall were busy throughout the day. One observer at city hall said the polling station was still busy leading up to the 8 p.m. cutoff. If anyone was inside the building when the doors were locked at 8 p.m. they would be permitted to vote, but no new voters would be permitted to enter the building, city electoral officer Davina Hartwell said.

Council chambers filled quickly before 8 p.m. with candidates, their families and supporters. This is the first year that city hall has opened its doors to the public on election night. Other candidates gathered at Char’s Landing across the street from city hall. Incumbent mayor John Douglas chose to attend the Alberni Valley Bulldogs’ hockey game—the same place he was when he was elected mayor in 2011.
