A ballot that featured the county’s first Republican Primary since 1929 still wasn’t enough to bring voters to the polls en masse Tuesday.

A total of 2,962 voters, or 31.5-percent, cast votes in Tuesday’s Primary Election. That was five-percent fewer than cast votes in the 2002 May Primary Election.

There will be at least two new faces on Trigg Fiscal Court next year, with one incumbent losing his seat in the election.

Doug Taylor defeated two-term incumbent Kevin Stroud 228-195 in the Democratic Primary from District One.

“I’m thankful to all of my supporters, for allowing me to put a sign in their yard, accepting literature and for believing in the same things that I do- a desire for change and a new future,” said Taylor.

Calls to Stroud’s residence and place of business were not answered.

Taylor will face Republican Tommy Dunn in November after Dunn defeated Stacy Futrell 51 votes to 38 votes. No Republican has represented the First District since Henry Compton in 1929.

In District Three, Bruce Sanders easily defeated Edward “Buddy” Gish 176-82 to set up a November showdown with Republican Jon Goodwin, who defeated Lucas Chesnut 44-20.

Jim Ricks appeared on the Democratic ballot but withdrew from the race last month, and his votes weren’t counted.

Either Sanders or Goodwin will replace Gene Wright, who decided not to seek a sixth term on Fiscal Court.
