The early and vote by mail tallies are in as recorded by the Santa Rosa County Division of Elections.
The early numbers show Bob Cole and Rob Williamson having heavy leads in the county commissioner races while Carol Boston is leading Jim Taylor for school board. Early voters also voted against the sales tax for the courthouse and all three locations were heavily voted against, though the downtown courthouse location received the highest number of “yes” votes. Finally, early voters cast a decided “no” on the straw poll for incorporation.
Results from Election Day votes are currently being tallied and will be posted as soon as possible.
