Local voters went to the polls last week for the first ever Republican Primary in Chester County. A total of 2,382 voters participated, 22.22% of the 10,718 registered voters in the county. The majority of the races were uncontested, and those candidates will go on to run in the General Election in August. For two candidates, however, the primary results meant the end of the race.
In the mayoral race, Chester County Mayor Barry Hutcherson, incumbent, emerged the victor, with total 1,465 votes to vying candidate Beverly Morton’s 877.
Chester County Trustee Lance Beshires, incumbent, garnered a total of 1,533 votes in the Chester County Trustee race, to take the win over challenger Sharon Stovall’s 807.
Hutcherson and Beshires will both proceed to August’s General Election.
