It’s official: Kate Troll has won the Areawide Assembly seat in the 2013 municipal election’s only contested race.
Troll edged out fellow long-time Juneau resident Bill Peters by 536 votes with just 19 percent of Juneau’s registered voters casting a ballot.
The election goes down as the capital city’s worst ever in terms of voter turnout — the previous low for a regular election was 26 percent in 2008.
Assembly incumbents Mary Becker and Karen Crane were both re-elected after running unopposed, and current school board members Barbara Thurston and Lillian “Lisa” Worl also were elected without a challenger.
It marked Worl’s first nod of public approval as she was nominated by the school board to fill a vacant seat after a sitting member moved late last year.
There were no ballot questions this year.
