HARDIN COUNTY — Though voter turn-out in Hardin County was lackluster — just 22.77 percent of registered voters made it to the polls on Tuesday — those who did set the stage for next November’s general election.

In contested Republican primaries, according to unofficial results released Wednesday by the Hardin County Board of Elections, both Tim Striker and Robert McColley held their own against challengers.

Striker handily defeated his opponent, Bob Carder, for a seat in the commissioner’s race late this year. Striker received 2,107 votes, just shy of 70 percent of the total, to Carder’s 911. In November, Striker will face off against Ronald Eastman, who ran uncontested on the Democratic ticket in the primary.

McColley, who was appointed to former Senator Cliff Hite’s Senate District 1 seat late last year, overcame a field of opponents, pulling down just over 53 percent of the vote in Hardin County, and over 61 percent throughout the district. McColley’s opponent in the November general election will be Adam Papin, who, as with Eastman, ran unopposed on the Democratic ticket.
