The results are finally in for perhaps the most contentious aldermanic race this election season.

Challenger Susan Sadlowski Garza defeated the incumbent Ald. John Pope by a mere 20 votes in the final count for the 10th ward race.

All votes, including the ones from absentee ballots, have been counted as of Tuesday. According to results from the Chicago Board of Elections, Sadlowski Garza received 5,825 votes to Garza's 5,805 in the final count.

The numbers will not be official until Thursday during the proclamation, but officials from the Chicago Board of Elections said they do not anticipate any changes in the counts between now and then.
