Isabella County 2020 general election results


d6be829b-6fb6-4bd9-a8db-5418394d18eb
Amidst the scattered fallen leaves, this single sticker was cast off of the voter who had carried it, yet still a representation of the use of another’s civil liberties Tuesday, Nov. 3.

Election results are finally in after an election source-programing malfunction caused the county's I.T. department to hand-enter tabulator results into the system by hand.

This year, 74.19 percent of registered Isabella County voters cast their ballots. County Clerk Minde B. Lux said voter turnout was at around 60 percent in the 2016 election.

While overall results for the presidential election in the state of Michigan remains inconclusive, Isabella went red in a close race between President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden.

Trump received about 50 percent of total votes in the county while Biden received 47 percent.

The 99th State Representative District and 4th U.S. Congressional District races also went red, with State Rep. Roger Hauck and U.S. Rep. John Moolenaar.

Closer to home, Mount Pleasant voters elected Olivia Cyman and Will Joseph to fill two city commission seats. James Moreno ran uncontested in the 5th District county commission race and won.

Here are full results from Isabella:
