Dane Howard garnered nearly twice as many votes as his opponent, Jamey Bracken, in the race for Huron County sheriff, according to an unscientific online poll conducted by the Norwalk Reflector.
The Reflector asked readers who gets their vote for sheriff, and 662 responded by choosing Howard, a Democrat and detective sergeant in the sheriff's office.
Bracken, a Republican and captain in the sheriff's office, earned 328 votes. An additional 86 respondents selected the third option: "None I won't cast a vote in this race."
While Howard may have prevailed in the online poll, the real winner in the race won't be declared until after the Nov. 4 general election.
