In one of the contested races, 460 votes were cast for incumbent Sheriff Scott Steele. Challenger DaLane "Dewey" Stedman received 258. In the race for a District 3 County Commission seat, incum- bent David Quale received 394 votes. Paul Schmitz received 294. There were 16 other write-in votes for this position. In the race for a District 1 County Commission seat, John Thompson was the only name on the ballot, and he received 470 votes. It had been mistakenly reported in the News last week that Bob Schmeling was waging a write- in campaign in the race involving Quale and Schmitz, when Schmeling was actually seeking the District 1 position. A total of 161 votes were received in opposition of Thompson. It wasn't clear at press Stedman time if all 161 belonged to Schmeling.

The sole voting precinct in the county was at the Beach High School gym, and teacher Rod Merkel took that as an opportunity for students in his American g0v- ernment classes to learn about vot- ing. Raynette Szudera, one of the election officials, showed students how an automated voting machine works, and she explained voter eli- gibility requirements. Szudera said the question of whether or not to vote was as simple as: "If you don't vote, then you aren't counted."
