Today’s Primary Election Will Determine One Winner
It’s primary day in Lake County, so be sure to get out and cast your vote or drop off your ballot to the Lake County Courthouse in downtown Leadville. While many party candidates are running unopposed in the Primary Election, closest to home is where your vote will count the most today.
While the Primary is generally seen as a precursor to the big event in November, for one seat on the Board of County Commissioners, today’s election will determine the District Two Commissioner position as there is no Republican, or otherwise, challenger for November.
Joe Swyers is running as a candidate for Lake County Commissioner, District Two and is opposing Candidate Sarah Mudge in today’s Primary Election on June 28. Since there is no other opponent in the race for this position, whomever wins the Primary Election will win the seat, so your vote truly counts here.
In District Three for Lake County Commissioner, Tina Tekanisk will face off against Bud Elliott. The victor from today’s election will face off against Republican Candidate Mark Glenn in next November’s Election.
Your vote does count, it does matter. In small communities like Lake County, one vote really can make the difference. The polls are open until 7 p.m. tonight. Leadville Today will be bringing readers today’s election results as they come in and report them immediately via the web site and social media platforms. Stay tuned!
