Official election results were finalized and canvassed July 5 at the Morgan County Commission meeting. This final count of Morgan County election ballots, different from the unofficial election results from that were displayed on the Morgan County website June 28, included the ballots postmarked and sent in the mail on June 27. Of those postmarked on June 27, 28 ballots were added to the final count. Nonpartisan votes equaled 291 and Republican votes equaled 2928.
As explained in the county commission meeting, there were no democrat primaries because there were not any democrats running for positions applicable to Morgan County. Typically, there is a really high voter turnout, but this year it was not as high as it should be, said the presenter.
The final election results are as follows. To note, there were no ties or significant action in which a candidate pulled ahead of the other. Those who succeeded in primaries are still confidently secure in those positions with the finalized results.
