Both were running unopposed in Tuesday’s general election.

Johnson received 4,505 votes. Kirkeide received 4,866 votes. There were 162 write-in votes.

The council is scheduled to meet Monday evening to canvas the election results.

A vacancy on the city council will come in January as a result of Julie Braastad being elected to the Anoka County Board. Braastad is currently serving her second term on the city council.
