Only one of the five Ann Arbor City Council seats up for election yesterday featured more than one candidate. Incumbent Stephen Rapundalo (D-Ward 2) edged out write-in candidate Edwin Amonsen. The almost completely uncontested election made for a slow day for election workers John Dahl and Angelina Rodriguez (above) who worked at the polling station in the Michigan Union. The Union is in Ward 1, where newcomer Sabra Briere, a Democrat, ran unopposed. As of 5 p.m. yesterday, only five people had voted at the Union. But Dahl was planning to stay at his post until polls closed at 8 p.m. “It doesn’t matter if you have 1,000 votes or 10, you have to go through the same procedure,” Dahl said. (ROB MIGRIN/Daily)
