Park County Voters Show Up Despite Weather
Written by andrew-rossi on November 9, 2018
Over two-thirds of registered voters in Park County showed up to cast their ballots in Tuesday’s mid-term elections.
Park County Clerk Colleen Renner says that they are canvassing the ballots today, to certify the election results for the state. She says that voter turnout was good on Tuesday, despite the snowy weather that hampered the process.
Renner says that 11,913 votes were cast, about 72 percent of the county’s 16,326 registered voters. The last votes came in at 9:52 p.m.
The current population of the county sits at about 26,000.
She adds that the next election will bring some changes, as the electronic voting equipment they’ve been using for many years has reached the end of its useful life.
Renner says that county clerks across the state will be approaching the state legislature about funding for new equipment before the next election in 2020.
