In yet another example of how every vote counts – especially in those local elections.
In the Feb. 16 primary for the District 22 seat on the County Board, Zoulek finished tied for second with incumbent Supervisor Dennis Myers with 234 votes. But Canvass Board meetings in Richfield and Germantown on Monday produced one more vote from an absentee ballot for Zoulek, breaking the second-place tie. The Washington County Board of Canvassers reviewed the ballots and certified the results during their meeting Tuesday morning.
First-place finisher Rock Brandner also received one more vote through an absentee ballot filed in Richfield, giving him a final total of 438. Dale Peterson finished last with 74 votes.
