The first batch of votes on MoCo races has been reported. This is VERY early and VERY incomplete. So far, the reports include only early votes and less than half the mail ballots requested by MoCo voters with no election day votes tabulated. All of that means these races are FAR from decided, folks!
All of that said, here are the earliest results. Bear in mind that the final percentages are going to be different, but how different they will be cannot yet be said.
School Board At-Large: Lynne Harris 53%, Sunil Dasgupta 46%
School Board District 2: Rebecca Smondrowski 60%, Michael Fryar 39%
School Board District 4: Shebra Evans 67%, Steve Solomon 33%
Question A (Authored by Council Member Andrew Friedson, freezes property tax rate with unanimous council vote required to exceed): For 63%, Against 37%
Question B (Authored by Robin Ficker, would limit property tax receipt growth to rate of inflation and remove council’s ability to exceed): For 41%, Against 59%
Question C (Authored by Council Member Evan Glass, changes county council structure to 4 at-large seats and 7 district seats): For 62%, Against 38%
Question D (Authored by Nine Districts for MoCo, changes county council structure to 9 district seats): For 41%, Against 59%
It is probably not a coincidence that these results mirror the recommendations of the county’s Democratic Party, but the results are far from final.
