I wrote "...én stemme", and it was marked as a typo. But isn't this a sentence in which one would use "én" ?

Yes, I wrote the same thing, otherwise it could be misunderstood as "the mayor won with a vote" even though I suppose one could tell from context that it should be "one vote".

It seems to me that the proper English sentence would be "The mayor won by one vote," no?

See kids, that's why you never should cast a blank vote! ;)
