Thomas O'Reilly has been elected as a councillor for Harvester Ward in Brimbank City Council, after the Victorian Electoral Commission conducted a countback of votes at 10 am on Monday 23 January.
The election manager, Lisa Osborne, today declared the result after a countback of votes from the general election held in October 2020.
Only those candidates who were unsuccessful at the general election and who were still eligible to be elected were included in the countback process.
The extraordinary vacancy arose due to the election of Councillor Trung Luu to the Victorian Parliament.
