Primary Results: Mudge Wins, Elliott Moves On
“Elections belong to the people. It’s their decision. If they decide to turn their back on the fire and burn their behinds, then they will just have to sit on their blisters.”

It was victory to Sarah Mudge with 540 votes for Lake County Commissioner in District 2, beating out Joe Swyers who garnered 381 votes. Since Mudge is uncontested in the November election, she has secured her seat on the Board of County Commissioners five months early.
It was a close call in District 3 with a split of only 15 votes favoring Bud Elliott with 465 over Tina Tekansik’s 450 vote. This pits Elliott against Republican nominee Mark Glenn on November 8.
Lake County voters also weighed in on a number of state positions from District Attorney to State Representative, most of which will come to a rightful conclusion in November. But to see how locals cast their entire ballots, refer to the Lake County Primary Election Results.

Thanks to all voters for participating and taking interest in local elections, it’s what matters on historic Harrison Avenue!
