Voters choose new senator, magistrates

By Dave Taylor

Tuesday’s election shook up more than just the judge/executive’s seat in Hancock County, but it also will mean new leadership in several city, county and state offices, while some incumbents held onto their seats by narrow margins. 

Turnout Tuesday might have seemed high, but it was actually lower than other recent elections, both in percentage and total numbers. This year 55.73 percent of registered voters turned out, which is a huge jump from the 31.06 of the primary, but a drop from the 2014 midterm (57.67) and the 2016 general election (64.46).
