Election Night saw the continuation of Republicans winning the majority of the contested seats this race. One of the more heated races was the Sheriff’s position. Republican incumbent Matt Hassel squared off against Democrat challenger Jeffrey Sharp. The result of the race didn’t come at high noon like in the old Western movies, rather it arrived later that night. In the end, Hassel garnered 66.47% of the votes while Sharp came away with 33.53%.
