Upper Gwynedd Board of Commissioners consists of 3 Republicans and, for the first time ever, 2 Democrats.
Upper Gwynedd commissioners are elected at-large rather than by precinct. That has resulted in all 5 commissioners being elected from the Republican Party until the 2017 election.
In 2017 two democrats were elected to the board of Commissioners for the very first time.
In 2019 the 3 Republican commissioners are up for reelection. It is our mission and hope to elect one or more Democrats and thereby, for the first time ever, take the majority on the board.
But here are the numbers for registration. Note that the Republicans have only a 188 vote registration advantage:
In 2013 that advantage was over 400 votes and democrats lost by approximately 300 votes.
So your vote and that of your neighbor really does matter. A few votes can turn around a 30+ year stranglehold.
