Brett Bittner was re-elected to the Marietta, Georgia School Board; Walter Reynolds was elected to the Milledgeville, Georgia city council; Erwin Haas was elected to the Kentwood, Michigan city commission; Matt Hoerner was elected to the Hope Mills, North Carolina Board of Commissioners; Shawn Felty was elected to the Cressona, Pennsylvania Borough Council; Nicholas Hillman was elected Judge of Elections in a precinct in Berks County, Pennsylvania; Brandon Magoon was elected Inspector of Elections in a precinct in Erie County, Pennsylvania; Matt Schutter was elected Township Auditor in Penn Forest, Pennsylvania. UPDATE: also two were elected in Michigan. They were Erwin Haas to the Kentwood City Commission, and Andy LeCureaux to the Hazel Park city council.

The Pennsylvania wins were in partisan elections; the others were non-partisan. Update: here is a newspaper story about Shawn Felty’s win. Cressona Borough was electing two council members, and there were three candidates on the ballot, Felty and two Republicans. Felty received 195 votes; the two Republicans received 187 votes and 168 votes.
