| November 9, 2016

COSHOCTON – As the people of the United States had their eye on the 2016 presidential race, residents of Coshocton County also had a decision to make on the person who would fill the vacancy in the Clerk of Courts position at the courthouse.

The contested race was between Jinni Bowman (D) and Camila Graham (R). Graham was ahead for the first round of results that were posted at the Coshocton County Board of Elections with a 775 lead over Bowman and was able to keep that momentum all night.

“It feels great,” said Graham. “I feel very grateful and honored. I think it was a close race actually.”

Graham carried the lead throughout the night with a total of 8,759 votes against Bowman’s total votes of 5,676.

“It was a good experience,” said Bowman. “I wouldn’t change anything. I went out and worked my tail off. I think it came down to the national election, and we are a very red county.”

Graham said she wants to keep running the position very much like her predecessor, Janet Mosier.

“I want to start scanning records,” she said. “I intend to continue running it as professionally and respectfully as it has been.”

She said she is thankful for her friends and family for all their hard work and support.

“Thank you to all my co-workers, friends, and family for all they’re hard work, encouragement, and help,” she said. “I couldn’t have done it without them.”

In the presidential election, Coshocton County showed overwhelming support to Republican candidate, Donald Trump with a total of 10,381 votes compared to 3,908 votes for Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton.
