(KSL News) The race for mayor was a close call in Hooper.
Incumbent Mayor Glenn Barrow was down by 14 votes on election night. But now, with all the votes counted, he won by six votes.
He said it was the closest race in the city's history, and every vote counts. "It's very important that all the citizens really take the opportunity to cast their votes. In this instance, just a few votes make all the difference in the world," said Barrow.
It's the first time a mayor has run for re-election in Hooper.
He said he had accepted the loss last Tuesday but is excited with the final outcome.
