Voter turnout for yesterday’s municipal primary reflected a traditional lack of interest. Less than 15,000 votes were cast county-wide, representing only about 26 percent of registered Democrats and 23 percent of registered Republicans.
Some results are incomplete as write-in votes have not yet been counted.
For County Commissioner, Marty Qually and Robert Albert Smith will represent the Democrats in the November election, while incumbents Jim Martin and Randy Phiel will be on the Republican slate.
Incumbent Ward 3 Gettysburg Borough Council member John Lawver has been defeated by Brian Hodges, who will face Democratic Alisha Sanders in the fall election.
Incumbent Chad Alan Carr will run for the Democrats in the Gettysburg Borough At-Large Seat, while Democrat Kierstan Belle will face Republican Peter Bales in Ward 1. Matt Moon will represent the Democrats in Ward 2.
The Gettysburg Area School District Director’s Board race will include 5 candidates on the Republican side (Martha OBryant, Cynthia Ayers, and incumbents Tim Seigman, Al Moyer, and Michael Dickerson) as well as 5 Democrats (Alice Broadway, Elizabeth A. Blanc, Rachael Stull, Michael Dickerson, and Al Moyer)
