You may already know this, but there is quite a difference in the way Grand County votes between precincts in the northern part of the county compared to the southern—mainly the south eastern portion.

In Grand County, 8,847 voters cast their ballots for an election that—love it or hate it—will be remembered for a long time.

Grand County voted for Donald Trump for president, Darryl Glenn for U.S. Senator, Rich Cimino for County Commissioner, and yes for ballot measures 1A, 1B, and 1C.

The election results show that the county, overall, is conservative, which is no surprise to most, but there is a notable area where democratic candidates won the precincts.

Precincts 6,7,9,11, and 12 include the towns of Fraser, Winter Park, and Tabernash. Democratic candidates tended to win in these areas, with the exception of precinct 12 where Clinton and Trump tied at 350 votes each, and the rest of the votes trended towards GOP candidates. The numbers correlate to the amount of registered democrats and republicans in each precinct, with no surprises on the way the votes turned out.

Some notable differences came in a few of the precincts regarding the ballot measures in Grand County.

The ballot measures were 1A (increased sales tax for open lands trails, etc.), 1B (increased mill levy to sustain libraries), and 1C (term limits for County Commissioners). Precincts 1 and 2 voted against the increased mill levy for the Grand County Libraries. In Precinct 4, the open lands ballot measure lost, and in precinct 8 it came to a tie.
