So how much of the vote went against the incumbents in each race? Interesting numbers. In three races, the majority of the vote went against the incumbent. In the other race, the vote was just under 50%.
Position 1 - 48.24% of the vote was for challengers. Peter Maier received 50.97%
Position 2 - 59.02% of the vote was for challengers. Sherry Carr received 40.15%
Position 3 - 57.99 % of the vote was for challengers. Harium Martin-Morris received 41.34%
Position 6 - 56.39% of the vote was for challengers. Steve Sundquist received 42.85%
Does it follow that all those who voted for the lowest vote-count challengers will automatically switch to the highest vote-count challenger? Odds are yes (unless they really believe only in the person they voted for and/or don't believe in the qualifications of the highest vote getter).
Well-run campaigns on the part of the winning challengers may translate to a win for them in the general election.
