Unofficial results from yesterday’s primary election have now been posted on the Wayne County Board of Elections’ website. The results were delayed several hours due to the high number of last minute mail-in ballots.  In two of the county’s few contested races, State Rep. Scott Wiggam and County Commissioner Ron Amstutz both had convincing wins over their opponents.  As for other issues on the ballot, the unofficial numbers show voters rejecting levy requests for the Wooster City School District and the villages of Shreve and Congress.  Voters, however, supported the Triway Local School District’s levy, with more than 58% of the vote.  The board will continue to accept ballots by mail up until May 8th, so long as they are postmarked no later than April 27th.  Only when all of those ballots are counted can the results be finalized.

Mail-in ballots are still being counted in Holmes County as well, but unofficial numbers there show most voters supporting the levy for the Holmes County Board of Developmental Disabilities’ training center.  With just under 3,200 ballots tabulated so far, board of elections officials say 59 percent of voters were in favor of the levy.
