Lake County voters on Tuesday favored all Republicans in contested statehouse races.

Incumbent Republican Rep. Joe Read fended off Democrat challenger Shirley Azzopardi in HD-93.

Ralph Foster knocked off incumbent Democrat Rep. Marvin Weatherwax Jr. in HD-15, while Republican Rep. Linda Reksten won re-election in HD-12.

The outlier came in Senate District 8, where Democrat incumbent Sen. Susan Webber topped Republican challenger Rick Jennison. Jennison tallied more votes in Lake County, but Webber, of Browning, made up the difference with Glacier County voters.

The Lake County Cemetery District mill levy was narrowly approved, with 53% in favor of the measure.

Voters also approved two Arlee School District bonds.
