Every vote counts

Only three votes decided close Low council race


When people say, “Every vote counts,” they really mean it.


Locally, that saying is best exemplified in the race to fill the third seat on the township of Low’s council. Just three votes separate the two candidates.


“It was a squeaker,” newly-elected Low councillor Maureen McEvoy said about her win.


According to Élections Québec preliminary results, McEvoy received 189 votes and her opponent, Low firefighter and first responder Andrew Wilson, received 186 votes.


“Every vote counts and it becomes very concrete and clear in a situation like this. Vote turnout matters,” McEvoy said.
