In yesterday’s primary, an exceedingly tight race has given Steven Boand of Castle Rock a mere 60-vote lead over Jeff Wasden of Highlands Ranch to be the Republican candidate for District II’s County Commissioner race. Bill Henry of Sedalia garnered 27 percent of the vote.
Douglas County reported that 25 percent of 10,7217 registered voters had cast votes. Election results are unofficial at this time (8/11/04 7:30 a.m.) and will be revised if needed.
The slim margin may result in a recount. Whoever emerges will be on the November 2 slate against Democrat Doug Gilbert, of Castle Pines North, in November.
To vote in the November 2 election, residents must register with the County Clerk’s office by October 4. Early voting will be held October 18 through 29. More information on early voting will be posted once it becomes available.
In the U.S. Senate race, Pete Coors pulled in 65 percent of the vote in Douglas County over his Republican opponent, Bob Schaffer, while Ken Salazar’s 77 percent gave him a solid Democratic victory over Mike Miles.
