Unofficial election results from Montgomery County show Democrats continuing to control Ambler’s Borough Council. This isn’t much of a surprise due to the Democratic Party’s voter registration advantage and a lack of any Republican candidates. Note that some Democrats running were able to secure enough votes in the primary to appear on the ballot as a Democrat and a Republican.
