Basement Beat: state representatives

Precinct vote tallies

Up next: the 72nd/80th Districts, Michigan House of Representatives.

Though it’s hard to read in a non-table, I thought readers would still appreciate seeing how each of the GOP candidates for state representative did in each area.

(If you’re curious as to why I’m bothering to post this info, read this.)

In official results, Cindy Gamrat won the nomination for the 80th District with 3,924 votes. Mary Whiteford earned 2,798; Steve Schulz, 2,462; and Randy Brink, 427.

Gamrat will face Democrat Geoff Parker on the Nov. 4 ballot. He earned only 2,202 votes Aug. 5—unchallenged for his party’s nomination—meaning he has his work is cut out for him to upset Gamrat for the two-year term. Allegan County is generally three-to-one Republican-to-Democrat in voting. Republican 80th district voting (between all four candidates) totaled 9,611.

As for the 72nd District—which includes Dorr, Leighton and Wayland Townships and Wayland city—unofficial tallies on the Michigan Secretary of State website show incumbent Ken Yonker won with 6,772 votes to challenger Gabe Hudson’s 2,719.

Only looking at Allegan County voting, Yonker got 1,337 to Hudson’s 653.

Yonker will face Democrat Kemal Hamulic Nov. 4. Unchallenged Aug. 5, he earned a total of 2,467 votes.

The data below is from a list provided by the Allegan County Clerk’s office.

Tallies are listed alphabetically (Brink, Gamrat, Schulz, Whiteford; or, alternately, Hudson, Yonker. Marked 72nd).
