Results are in for hamlet elections across Nunavut

All Nunavut hamlets, except Iqaluit, voted in new leadership on Monday.

Kugluktuk's election did not go-ahead and will be rescheduled

All Nunavut hamlets, except Iqaluit, voted in new leadership on Monday. 

Since the terms for mayor and councillor positions are staggered in many cases, communities only voted to fill positions that were vacant.

Pamela Gross was elected mayor of Cambridge Bay. (Submitted by Pamela Gross )
Currently, hamlets run their own elections, but a law passed this summer is transitioning control to Elections Nunavut and by 2019 mayors and councillors will serve fixed four-year terms. 

In Kugluktuk, the election was shut down by Nunavut's languages commissioner for failing to comply with the territory's language laws. A new election will be scheduled within the next 10 days.

In Arctic Bay, Frank May ran for both the roles of mayor and councillor. He was elected mayor and all the councillors were acclaimed. Since, May he cannot serve in both roles, Geela Arnauyumayuq was appointed to fill to role of councillor.  

In Cambridge Bay, an initial tie between council candidates Sandi Gillis and Stuart Rostant led organizers to put both names in a hat. In that case, Rostant was declared the winner. However, an official administrative recount later found that Gillis was ahead by just two votes. 

The following list includes all who were elected (or acclaimed).
