The official results for the Squamish 2022 municipal election are in.

Numbers from the final tally show that there have been no changes to the numbers that were cast in each candidate’s favour.

The only difference is the number of eligible voters counted in Squamish. This difference exists because of the number of new registrations — 573, to be exact.

As a result, this boosts the number of eligible voters in town to 16,910. However, the number of ballots cast remains unchanged.

While the election results are the same, the increase in eligible voters means there was an overall lower voter turnout than was initially calculated on Saturday.

That number is now 39.73%, down from  41.12%.

The final tally for each candidate, which has been unchanged since Saturday, shows Armand Hurford is taking the mayor’s seat with 66.57% of the votes. He garnered 4,436 votes.

The other two candidates for the District’s top job, Mike Young and Deanna Lewis, trailed 1,184 (17.77%) and 1,044 (15.67%) votes, respectively.

For council, the top vote-getters were Jenna Stoner (4,094 votes); Eric Andersen (3,642); Lauren Greenlaw (3,567); Chris Pettingill (3,316); Andrew Hamilton (3,071), and John French (3,053).
