Stevens Increases Lead in Race for Summit County Council after Thursday’s Vote Count

Jul 3, 2020



There’s a new tally in the Democratic race for Summit County Council. 

Malena Stevens widened her lead over Canice Harte to 1,437 votes in the race for Summit County Council on Thursday. Stevens led Harte in the Democratic primary by just under 1,000 votes after the first batch of results was released on Tuesday night.


After Thursday’s vote count, Stevens has 2,601 votes to Harte’s 1,164.


No Republican candidate is currently challenging for the seat. Unless there is a write-in candidate in November, the winner of the race between Stevens and Harte will become the next Summit County Councilor.
