It took Bloomington two days to get a final ballot count because they used paper ballots instead of an electronic counting system.

After two days of delays, Bloomington has finished counting its ballots. All contested races were won by incumbents.

Democrats Tim Mayer, Andy Ruff and Susan Sandberg won re-election for Bloomington City Council At-large. All earned more than 20 percent of the votes cast.

Democrat Chris Sturbaum held his seat for Bloomington City Council District 1 with 62 percent of the vote.
