Districting Referendum Rejected

The referendum to split Winfield into six election districts backed by Trustee Tim Allen was soundly defeated at the polls on Tuesday. Of the 2,772 ballots cast on Tuesday, 1,865 voted NO and 857 voted YES. This amounts to a margin of 68.5% – 31.5%.

The voters sent a clear message about their feelings on districting.

Also of note is the fact that Winfield had a 42% voter turnout in this primary election, far above the countywide average of 20% in the Republican Primary.

Thank you to all who did their civic duty by voting.
