Elections were held Tuesday in 17 townships in Douglas County, and in most cases incumbents won re-election by running unopposed.
However, there were a few contested races.
In Lund Township, incumbent supervisor Michael Stramer was defeated by Jon Ford 75-58. A one-year supervisor seat was also up for election and was won by Michael New. In a three-person race for clerk, Kim Englund was re-elected over Caroline Vickur and Sue Bertrand.
In LaGrand Township, Allen Scofield drew 47 of 48 write-in votes, but that wasn’t enough to unseat incumbent Dick Miller for supervisor. Miller received 74 votes.
In Moe Township, incumbent supervisor Lynn Bushard defeated Scott Wright 38-14.
In Orange Township, incumbent Bruce Massmann did not run for a supervisor position. In voting Tuesday, Dave Boogaard received 14 votes and Bob Massmann 5.
Brandon, Carlos and Miltona townships all hold elections in November on even-numbered years.
