All other precincts have reported, with the exception of Paton. There was confusion of how to do a write-in for the mayor’s seat since no one submitted nomination papers to be on the ballot. Auditor Jane Heun tells Raccoon Valley Radio the Paton precinct results will be posted Wednesday. Full results can be found below.
All results are unofficial until the Greene County Board of Supervisors canvass the votes.
