Voter turnout was weak for Tuesday’s Republican Primary for Bermuda District’s Board of Supervisors. Incumbent Dorothy A. Jaeckle, serving in the position since 2007, won 2 – 1 against challenger Chris McCarney. With the unofficial results from 13 of 13 precincts reporting (includes absentee), a total of 1,831 votes were cast with Jaeckle receiving 1, 218 votes and McCarney with 613 votes.
This was only the first leg of a campaign for Jaeckle to save her seat. Two additional challengers filed before the polls closed on Tuesday. Challenger’s Kenny Britt and Mark Fausz have both filed as Independents. Bermuda will be the most contested district in the county.
