MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Some Marquette city residents may be seeing a discrepancy in voting polls as compared to last night's numbers for the city commission race. This is because the final counts don’t come out until 1 p.m. – or possibly even later – Wednesday.
The unofficial results reported last night seeing Evan Bonsall in the lead for one of the two seats on the city commission, followed by Andrew Lorinser, Sally Davis, then Margaret Brumm. However, Marquette County Clerk, Linda Talsma, said she doesn’t expect the final totals to be posted till 4 p.m.

This year was an odd year for voting, with only a 12.7 percent turn out.
"It was sad because there's a lot of people that put a lot of time into this and I wish we could have seen more of a voter turnout,” said Talsma.
While disappointed with the turn out, Talsma expects to see plenty more voters next year.
