Midlands Election Night - Full Results Here

It was election day in the Midlands...and many local races went as expected

(WLTX) -  We now have final results for the elections held across the Midlands Tuesday. 

Those numbers can be found here: http://www.wltx.com/elections

There were no statewide races on the ballot; instead, voters chose for candidates running for municipal elections, meaning mayors and town council members. 

In Columbia, incumbents Tameika Isaac Devine and Sam Davis easily won re-election to their seats. Current Mayor Steve Benjamin was up for re-election this year, but no one filed to oppose him. 

Over in Lexington County, Chapin will have a new mayor, after David Knight defeated incumbent Skip Wilson. In the one voter question on the ballot, Irmo voters rejected a change to a city ordinance that would have allowed people to raise and keep chickens at their home. 

There was one particularly unusual result from the night: a write-in candidate won. That was over in the Lexington County town of Pine Ridge, where Robert Wells defeated David Busby 80-70, even though he wasn't on the ballot.
