Even though the final vote count has not yet been released by the Stark County BOE, Canton Mayor Janet Weir Creighton has conceded. Around 10:40 p.m., she told her supporters that she had been defeated by 92 votes.

William Healy II is Canton's new mayor and the first Democrat to hold the post in quite a few years.

Healy lead by about 1,000 votes throughout the evening but the results from the BOE website were very, very slow. Even at 11 p.m., the BOE is only showing 30 percent of the precincts counted although the Canton Repository posted a story at 10:45 p.m. claiming those same numbers are actually 100 percent.

Looks now like the BOE site was showing a 30 percent turnout .. and not 30 percent of the precincts. Viewers who called our newsroom thought the same thing throughout the night.
