Election Day - Tuesday, November 8, 2016 

Three Park City School Board seats were up for re-election this season. District two and three will be vacated by Tania Knauer and Nancy Garrison. However, Phil Kaplan, ultimately ran unopposed when his opponent dropped out of the race last month. Carolyn Murray has more on school board election results. 

In an historic voter turnout, Summit County voters went to the polls and elected two new county council members, approved two tax increases and two new state representatives. 

In the battle between east and west side planning commissioners, the democrat from Oakley and a member of the east side planning commission Doug Clyde was elected to serve on the Summit County Council Seat B – replacing council member Claudia McMullin who didn’t run for reelection.

Nearly 80 Summit County residents turned out for the  KPCW/Park Record Candidate Forum Monday night. Here are the segments in their entirety.
