MENDOCINO Co., 6/28/22 — Final results are in from Mendocino County’s June 7 primary election, which saw a 42% voter turnout — more than 5% higher than what Katrina Bartolomie, county clerk, assessor and recorder, expected.
Nicole Glentzer defeated incumbent Michelle Hutchins in the race for county superintendent of schools with 55.35% of the vote. It was the only race on the ballot where an incumbent was defeated and looked to be a tight race early on when initial ballot counts showed Glentzer slightly ahead of Hutchins.
Voters overwhelmingly voted in favor of Anderson Valley School District’s bond measure, Measure M. The measure received 71.36% of votes in favor.
District 3 Supervisor John Haschak defeated challenger Clay Romero with 71.72% of votes and District 5 Supervisor Ted Williams defeated challenger John Redding with 82.52% of votes.
Sheriff Matthew Kendall received 85.52% of votes in his race against write-in candidate Trent James, who filed his write-in candidacy paperwork only a few weeks prior to the election.
Incumbents Congressman Jared Huffman, State Senator Mike McGuire and Assemblyman Jim Wood each won their races against challengers in the primary.
Out of 52,602 registered voters in Mendocino County, 22,248 voted in the primary election, largely by mail.

wow… only 3 weeks later the final results are in! Unbelievable! Maybe if people had more faith in our elections we’d have a higher turn out. This whole ‘ballots for all’ scheme has got to stop! Where’s the outrage on all the wasted paper, huh!? Environmentalists seem to only care when it’s convenient for them.
What are you suggesting? Restricting peoples ability to vote by getting rid of mail in ballots? This will only lower turnout even more, wo need more people actively voting not less
I gave my suggestion, stop with the bs mail ballots for all. Unless you are not a fan of chain of command and over sight. It’s called abuse and they used the CCP virus to do it. Nobody is restricted to vote the old way, that’s 100% hogwash. In fact if you do your homework you’ll find that voter turn out went up when they implement Voter ID.
Less than half of registered voters, voted. So it sure seems a lot of people are using the extra paper for fire starter.
