The unofficial results of Tuesday’s general election have been released by the Highland County Board of Elections. The total number of ballots cast in Highland County was 12,725 out of 27,203 registered voters for an overall turnout of 46.78 percent.

All of the winners of the statewide and Highland County races are Republicans.

“It’s tough for a Democrat to win in a Red district,” said Gary Boone, who was unsuccessful in his bid for a state senate seat against Shane Wilkin in Ohio’s District 17. Boone also thanked everyone who supported him.

Wilkin said the margin of his victory with nearly 75 percent of the vote exceeded his expectations. “I was very pleased with all the support, and anytime you’re in a position where your name is on the ballot, people give you the responsibility of going to be their voice, and it’s very humbling,” said Wilkin. “It’s an honor, and I hope this outpouring of support is based off of what I’ve been able to do since I’ve been there in the House and the like-minded ideas of what I want to get done and keep doing in the Senate.”

In the biggest contested race in Highland County to fill the Highland County commissioner seat being vacated by Jeff Duncan, Republican Brad Roades defeated Democrat Tara Campbell by an unofficial count of 9,453 to 3,105.
