Local Primary Election Results

MADERA COUNTY — Madera County had a very low voter turn out for the June 7th primary. With 71,961 registered voters in Madera County only 13,417 ballots were cast in yesterdays primary for a turnout of 18.64%. The eastern portion of Madera County that makes up District 5 has 18,697 registered voters.

The most anticipated race was for District 5 Supervisor to fill the seat of long time Supervisor Tom Wheeler who is retiring at the end of his term. With 3 candidates vying for the honor to represent District 5, it appears that there will be a runoff in the November general election. To win in yesterdays primary one candidate would have needed to secure 50% plus one of the vote to avoid a runoff.  As of 10:36 pm on June 7th, no candidate was able to do so for District 5 Supervisor.

Robert ‘Bobby’ Macaulay was leading with 2478 votes, which is 47.26% with Mark S. Reed receiving 2115 votes, which is 40.34%. The third candidate, Edward S. ‘Beau’ Campbell, Jr. received 650 votes which makes up 12.4%.

Acting Sheriff Tyson Pogue, who was appointed to the Sheriff/Coroner position after Sheriff Jay Varney was hired as the County CAO, has a commanding lead with 9906 votes for 80.27%. His opponent retired Chowchilla Police Officer, Ruben Mendoza received 2435 votes for 19.73%

District 1 Supervisor, Brett Frazier chose to run for County Assessor and not defend his Supervisor Seat. He has the lead with 6180 votes, 51.35% over his opponent Jorge Torres who has 2435 votes, for 48.65%

Judge of the Superior Court, Office 1 is being contested by two candidates. Katherine M. Rigby has 8667 votes, 70.68%, with her opponent, Alaina N. Ybarra receiving 3596 votes, for 29.32%.

Updates will be provided starting Friday June 10th and will continue every Wednesday and Friday until all ballots have been counted.

Rebecca Martinez, County Clerk/Recorder says, “not interested in speed, interested in accuracy”.
