Omaha Election Results

Cross posted from DLMSY:

Tuesday was election day in Omaha, Nebraska's largest city (some would say "only"). Incumbent mayor, Mike Fahey, easily defeated challenger, Dave Friend, with 60.7% of the votes. All but one member of the City Council was re-elected. Full results here.

The turnout was pathetic, just 24.6% of registered voters. Lincoln's City Council Election last week managed 29.3% without a mayoral contest. While that was nothing to write blog home about, it looks good compared to Omaha's miserable showing.
