A ballot box is missing in Calgary.

A deputy returning officer for the Foothills hospital in Calgary noticed a ballot box was missing during transport to the central ballot location on Monday night.

Returning officer Barb Clifford says the missing box contained 43 ballots, but adds those should not affect the outcome of any results.

Clifford says the election office is working hard to recover the missing ballot box so the votes can be added to the official results.

Meanwhile, in Edson, a recount resulted in a tie for the sixth councillor between Jim Gomuwka and John Walker.

The town says a draw was held and Walker's name was drawn, so he won the final spot on council.
