(ANGOLA) - There will be a new member of the Steuben County Commission next January. Challenger Lynne Liechty defeated incumbent Loretta Smart in Tuesday's Republican Primary by 88 votes, 1724-1636. Smart made history four years ago when she was elected as the first female Steuben County Commissioner. Liechty will face Democrat Todd Gorman in the November general election.

While the Commissioners race was a nailbiter, the G.O.P. Prosecutors race had a lopsided result. Jeremy Musser scored a landslide victory over former Prosecutor Don Shively 2671-767. As of Tuesday, there was no Democratic candidate for Prosecutor.

The Republican primary for the District Four seat on the Steuben County Council was won by Will Howard who had 374 votes. Jeffrey Fee was second with 294 while Justin Stouder was third with 194. Howard will face Democrat Elten Powers in the fall.

Republican Pleasant Township Trustee Craig Rice defeated challenger Lisa Boone 690-523. Rice will face Democrat Judy Rowe in the fall.

In the Democratic Primary for the Pleasant Township Board, Lou Ann Homan, Kathy Vaughn and Larry Davis were the top three candidates and they advanced to the November general election ballot.

In the Congressional Primaries, Republican incumbent Marlin Stutzman and Democrat Jim Redmond carried Steuben County.

With no statewide races and very few contested races on the ballot, Tuesday's Steuben County turnout was a disappointing 18 percent of registered voters which was well below the 29 percent turnout for the May Primary two years ago and the 34 percent turnout for the Primaries in 2010 and 2008.
