All had cross-filed in the primary and won a spot on the Nov. 5 ballot before Fallin obtained enough signatures to run in the municipal election.

York County officials were still trying to tally the votes Wednesday, Nov. 6, a day after an election marred by problems with new voting machines and long lines that frustrated voters and prompted the state GOP to seek an injunction.

Southern York County's results were still not finalized days later. All votes have been counted and resulted were officially certified Friday, Nov. 15.
