The polls were quiet in Huron Township Tuesday. Out of exactly 11,714 registered voters in Huron, only 1,971 total ballots were cast during the primary.

A field of candidates hoping to claim a spot on the Board of Trustees in Huron Township has been narrowed down following Tuesday’s primary, setting the stage for November’s general election.

The candidates running for trustee as a Democrat and moving on to the primary election in November are Jeremy Cady, incumbent Donna Mendrysa, Candace Myshock, and Kristy Novicki.

Republicans running for trustee and moving on to the general election include incumbent Michael Glaab, Walter Irodenko, David Patterson and John Chont.

David Haener, a Democrat running in the primary election for supervisor, edged out opponent Marlene Krause and will challenge incumbent Republican Supervisor David Glaab in the fall.

Incumbent Democrat Treasurer Linda Spangler earned more votes than her primary opponent Calude Wright, and will be challenged by Republican Colleen Lazare during the general election.

Incumbent Clerk Kathlene Van Wasshnova will take on challenger Antoinette Gracia in November.

Out of exactly 11,714 registered voters in Huron Township, only 1,971 total ballots were cast, making for a very small voter turnout.

    That surely is a pretty sad turn-out indeed! I hope people start realizing their right and duty to make their voice heard through voting. Too many heroes have died to defend that right to just not exercise it. Kudos to everyone who did come out and cast their ballot yesterday and congratulations to all the advancing candidates!

      What is also sad, is that out of the dismal 17% voter turn-out, that 147 (7.5%) of those ballots were spoiled for crossing over party lines and another 164 (8.5%) did not vote on partisan issues. That leaves 1,660 voters, 14% of all registered voters in Huron Township to select the candidates to become our elected officials for the next 4 years.
