2022 Township Election Results

On Tuesday, March 8, 15 of Wright County’s 18 townships conducted elections. Township elections are not administered by the county Elections Divisions, so there was a delay for the final results to be reported.

Most elections saw one candidate file for township offices, but there were some anomalies in some of the races. Four offices had nobody on the ballot – two supervisor positions in Monticello Township, one supervisor in Maple Lake Township and the Town Clerk position in Woodland Township that were determined by write-in balloting.

The strangest election took place in Stockholm Township where Town Supervisor incumbent Dan Geslinger was the only name on the ballot, but was defeated by write-in candidate Davis Sand.

For more information on individual races, contact the Township Hall where they took place.
