Grand Forks County has officially selected Bob Rost, Diane Knauf and Tom Falck for the County Commission, following a recount Wednesday.

Results were close after Election Day, with only a 47-vote difference between Falck and Kyle Kvamme. On Thursday morning, County Auditor Debbie Nelson, who led the recount, said the difference ended up being only 49 votes.

The newly elected Rost and incumbents Knauf and Falck will be sworn in Dec. 4, according to County Administrator Tom Ford. Rost is replacing outgoing commissioner Gary Malm.

Rost received the most votes, winning approximately 27 percent of the vote. Knauf came in second with about 25 percent of the vote, and candidate Jeffrey Powell came in last with just over 11 percent of the vote. Falck, who came in third, and Kvamme, who came in fourth, received 17.54 percent and 17.45 percent of the vote, respectively, according to results Nelson shared Tuesday after the canvassing board met.

The Herald was unable to immediately reach Falck and Kvamme for comment.
