North Dakota: Split decision in Valley City recalls -- Mayor survives, but City Council ousted

A split decision in the Valley City recalls. Mayor Bob Werkhoven survived his recall, defeating former Police Chief Dean Ross 1,128 to 860 (57% to 43%).
However, in a race I had not seen mentioned in the earlier coverage, commissioner Ken Evenson was bounced out by challenger Duane Magnuson, 1,023 to 950 (52% to 48%).

The 2,000 ballots amounted to about one-third of the city's population. Note the large number of absentee ballots --658 (North Dakota's a mite cold this time a year).
