How Lake County voted

Leadville voters approved the de-Brucing issue on the ballot 326-248, but Lake County voters turned down Colorado Mountain College’s funding measure by a vote of 698-507.

It appears that the CMC ballot issue went down in defeat districtwide by a vote of 17,289 in favor and 19,642 against, according to the Colorado Secretary of State's website  on Wednesday morning. It was unclear if these figures represent the final vote.

The only contested race for a city office was the write-in vote for city treasurer where the incumbent, Elsa Tharp, beat Tina Tekansik by a vote of 124-88.
