After Twin Lakes officials counted the last absentee ballots, unofficial results were finally released after five hours.

In four local elections, including one municipality, two incumbents were voted out.

The Village of Silver Lake released its results within an hour of polls closing.

However, due to an influx of voters in line at the Twin Lakes Village Hall, there was a delay.

Twin Lakes Village Clerk Julie Harms told reporters shortly before 8 p.m. to expect a delay of up to two hours.

Adding to the lines were the 283 absentee ballots that needed to be counted after polls closed.

“Results won’t be instantaneous, as we need to enter all of absentee ballots cast,” she said, noting 1,030 voters made their selections as of 7:45 p.m.

There were two notable changes in both a Silver Lake and Twin Lakes area election, with long-time Village Board Trustee Roger Johnson getting eliminated Tuesday.

Two newcomers are stepping for the Village of Silver Lake as trustees, 34-year-old Laura Francart and 56-year-old Bob Raymond, and are joined by incumbent Daniel Withers.

Additionally, current Board Clerk Marcie Badtke of Wilmot Union High School lost her bid for re-election.

Former Silver Lake Village President Sue Gerber notched the most votes in the Wilmot School Board while Steven Turner and current President Wayne Trongeau retained their seats.

Riverview added leading vote-getter Mike Gentile to its School Board while current President Jim Walker is staying.
