Slightly more than 70 percent of Mono County residents voted in the Nov. 2 election either in person or by mail. A total of 4,445 votes were counted by the elections office on Tuesday night.
In the race for Mono County Superior Court Judge, Mark Magit walked away with victory over Randy Gephart with 2,186 votes versus Gephart’s 1,895.
Bob Tems and Matthew Baumann were the people’s choice for the Eastern Sierra Unified School District Board. The two men soundly beat out incumbents Randy Gilbert and Ann Aylesworth.
In the battle of the two Tims, it was Hansen that walked away with the victory for District 4 Supervisor.
Brent Peterson nabbed nearly half of the votes for the first Mammoth Lakes Fire Commissioner seat up for grabs while incumbent Richard Good held on to the other.

Howard “Buck” McKeon kept his place as the U.S. Representative for California’s 25th congressional district while Ken Cooley beat out Ted Gaines for District 1 State Senator in the Primary vote.

According to a slight majority of Mono County voters, Meg Whitman should be governor over Jerry Brown. Whitman received 2,065 votes, Brown 1,992.
