Ellifritiz top vote getter in Mineral County Sheriff primary

June 10th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

Due to mechanical issues in the overnight hours on election night,  final but unoffcial vote totals for the Mineral County Sheriff's race were not released until 10:30 Wednesday morning. Forrest "Buddy" Ellifritz came out on top with 2,209 votes followed by Keith Anderson of Burlington with 1,805; Rod Ryan of Elk Garden with 827; and John Baniak of Burlington with 697. 404 votes seperates Anderson from Ellifritz. All four are Republicans and with no Democrats running, the winner of the primary- although on the November General ballot- will be the next sheriff. The official vote canvass is set for June 24th.
