Election 2018

Luther Goes GOP

Blumert, Moore projected winners

For the biggest precinct for those who live in and around Luther, the vote was decidedly Republican in every race – federal, state and local during the mid-term election, November 6, 2018.

Kevin Stitt was declared the winner in the gubernatorial race early in the evening by the Associated Press, with Luther’s votes at the Community Center echoing the rest of the state.

During Stitt’s visit to Luther in June, he met with Luther High School junior Ryan Jasper and others.N

As for the State Questions in Luther, the vote was YES for the “Walmart optometrists” and  “Mary’s Law,” and NO on the joint ticket for Governor/Lt. Governor, Gross Production “savings,” and school millage spending.

Here is the Luther breakdown in unofficial results. Of note, it appears that Luther voters were with the majority on most races, except for County Commission District One where Democrat Carrie Blumert has a decisive lead. With 70% of the vote reporting, it appeared Republican Lewis Moore would retain his seat for his last term as the state representative for District 96.
