Summit County vote updated
The Summit County Clerk’s office updated its unofficial vote counts for the 2021 general election on Wednesday afternoon.
The new report didn’t change the results that were announced Tuesday night—with one exception. It did break the tie in a City Council contest in Kamas.
In the balloting for Kamas City Council, which elects two positions, the lead still goes to David Darcey, with 330 votes.
But on election night, the contest for second place was tied, with Jessica Allen Bateman and Kandilee Sauter both receiving 201 votes.
The update on Wednesday shows Bateman in the lead, but not by much. Bateman garnered 239 votes, and Sauter received 230.
Outside of that contest, the closest race was for Coalville mayor. However, Mark R. Marsh is still in the lead, with 273 votes, compared to 225 votes for Lynn Wood.
County Clerk Eve Furse told the county council Wednesday that the vote count is pretty much settled, except for 32 provisional ballots, 312 ballots needing signature verification, and whatever votes they might still receive that are postmarked November 1st or before.
