WATERTOWN, S.D.–A Watertown woman has won a court ruling to get her name on next month’s city election ballot.

Kay Solberg turned in petitions to run for a city council seat in Ward A, but they were rejected by the Finance Office because they deemed they had not been fully completed.

Here are the races:
