For immediate release
Ed Cox has been elected as a councillor for Moira Shire Council, after the Victorian Electoral Commission conducted a countback of votes at 10.30 am on Monday 11 January.
The Election Manager, Katrina Collins, 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 passing of Councillor Andrew Goldman.
