There were some local elections in some of our area counties also in the general election on Tuesday.

In Miner County, three county commissioners were elected.  In unofficial results, the top three vote-getters in Tuesday’s election were Joe Bechen, Tom Reisch, and Mike Clary.

A Sheriff was elected in Kingsbury County on Tuesday.  Steven Strande won that election with 61-percent of the vote to Michael Jenkins’ 39-percent.

Moody County also had a Sheriff’s race in the general election yesterday.  Troy Wellman won that election with 77-percent of the vote, to Rob Neuenfeldt’s 23-percent.

The Moody County Register of Deeds race was a close one, with Brittany Bennett winning by just 48 votes over Kris Grootwassink.  For Moody County Commission-District 1, Jerry Doyle was the top vote-getter, and in District-3, it was David Reker.

McCook County voters approved a referendum Tuesday adding them to the Vermillion Basin Water Development District.

All results from Tuesday’s election are considered unofficial until they are canvassed by county officials.
