Votes in all 37 precincts in in Douglas County have now been counted.

The numbers will change slightly after 512 absentee ballots that were cast on Monday night and Election Day are included on Wednesday but one thing is sure: Donald Trump is the clear favorite in Douglas County.

Trump garnered 65% of the votes, cruising past Biden, who had 33%. Douglas County has now supported a Republican candidate for president for the 11th straight election.

As in the last two elections, no DFL candidate was able to carry Douglas County. Even Congressman Collin Peterson, who has served Minnesota's 7th District for 30 years, was soundly defeated, getting just 36% of the vote to Republican challenger Michelle Fischbach's 58%. The Associated Press early Wednesday morning called race for Fischbach, who carried 53.84% of the vote compared to Peterson’s 39.57% around 12:45 Wednesday morning.

With incomplete election returns, Fischbach held a 13 percentage point advantage over U.S. Rep. Collin Peterson with nearly 337,313 votes counted. Results, which may not contain all results returned by mail, continued to stream in slowly Tuesday evening and early Wednesday morning.
