7.41pm:

Kelly Nunn has been elected to the Wickham-Roebourne-Point Samson-Pastoral Ward in a landslide result against incumbent Fiona White-Hartig.

Ms Nunn attracted about 67 per cent of the vote, and had the result all but wrapped up by 7pm tonight.

Ms Nunn said it was nice to see the level of community support.

“I am just really honoured they have shown so much support for me, and am proud to become their representative,” she said.

“It will be a busy time ahead for me.

“I just want to be that conduit between whatever issues the community is having and the council.”

Counting has begun for Karratha ward, Shire of Exmouth and Tom Price wards.
