Final Roundup: Ann Arbor Nov. 6 Election

Democrats gained ground in local elections on Tuesday, but two high-profile Ann Arbor ballot initiatives were defeated.

Voters rejected a public art millage and a $65 million bond proposal for a new downtown Ann Arbor District Library building. But renewal of a millage for park maintenance and capital improvements won overwhelming approval.

In countywide races, Carol Kuhnke of Ann Arbor defeated Jim Fink of Ypsilanti for a judgeship on the 22nd Circuit Court, replacing Melinda Morris, who is retiring. Incumbent judge Tim Connors retained his seat over challenger Mike Woodyard.

The Washtenaw County board of commissioners will see changes following Tuesday’s election. Incumbent Republican Rob Turner was defeated by Democrat Kent Martinez-Kratz, decreasing the number of Republicans on the nine-member board from three to two. Republican Alicia Ping won the District 3 seat over Democrat Wes Prater – the two incumbents faced each other due to redistricting that took effect with this election cycle. Other incumbents won their seats, as did Democrat Andy LaBarre, who secured his first term on the board.

Democrats prevailed in all local races for the Michigan House of Representatives, most notably with Gretchen Driskell – the current mayor of Saline – defeating incumbent Republican Mark Ouimet in District 52.

Details of these and other races are below. For complete election results throughout Washtenaw County, check the county clerk’s elections website. [Full Story]

Results below are unofficial and should not be used for settling wagers. Last updated at 11/6/2012 23:59:07 This is the last update of the evening. The county clerk’s website now has the majority  of the precincts countywide logged: [link]. The four Ann Arbor absent voter count boards that are included in our results (but not yet included in the county clerk’s data) show an even clearer trend – than the citywide pattern – against the Ann Arbor proposals for a public art millage and the Ann Arbor District Library bond proposal. It looks like those ballot initiatives will fail. [Full Story]
