LOUISIANA (KPLC) -

Mandy Thomas won the Sulphur District 5 City Council seat Saturday - although she had to wait a little longer to find out the results of the race.

Clerk of Court Lynn Jones says there was an issue with the electronic transmission of results from the Sulphur office. Those results then had to be hand-delivered.

Thomas (REP) defeated Gerrit Zick Lawrence (REP) with 62 percent of the vote (463 votes to 284). 

In the primary election, Thomas had 42 percent (or 434 votes) and Lawrence had 28 percent (or 287 votes).
