Councilman Nichols was re-elected to his Place-5 seat and will receive the oath of office on Tuesday, Dec. 29 at 4 p.m. His council term will run through 2024.

The unofficial tabulation from Tuesday was: Craig Regan: 512 (20.49%)John Nichols: 1,987 (79.51%).

Turnout was less than previous city council runoffs. Less than 9% of the voters that cast ballots in the original Place 5 election returned to vote in the runoff.

Brazos County Elections Administrators notified the City of College Station that only three (of the 1,097 possible) mail ballots were received by the 5 p.m. deadline. While military ballots may still be received until Monday, Dec. 21 at 5 p.m., those 499 ballots are not large enough to overcome the 1,475-vote lead held by Councilman Nichols.

Previous Election Day Results:

City Council Place 5 incumbent John Nichols and his challenger Craig Regan underwent a runoff election since neither candidate received 50% plus one of the general elections’ overall votes.
