A one vote difference

One vote has secured Sarah Beach a seat on the Coal City Village Board. 

The determination of who would fill the third seat on the village board was finalized Wednesday morning once mail in votes were added and the  final results canvased.

Prior to the addition of mail in votes, Beach held a two vote lead over incumbent Dave Togliatti. The incumbent picked up a vote, but it wasn't enough to secure his re-election.

The official vote totals are Justin Wren 522, Tim Bradley 491, Beach 424, Togliatti 423 and Georgette Vota 390. 

Beach will be seated Wednesday, May 10.
