City of Cleveland, Cleveland Ward 14, Elections

Primary Election features low voter turnout

(Plain Press, October 2017) Despite the large number of candidates in the Cleveland Mayoral race and some hotly contested City Council races, the majority, of Cleveland’s registered voters, did not vote in the September 12 Primary Election. City-wide, 31,276 voters cast ballots in the Mayoral election representing only 12.35% of the 261,285 registered voters in Cleveland.

In Ward 14, where five candidates campaigned for Cleveland City Council, only 1,098 votes were cast in the City Council race or 7.69% of the 14,269 registered voters in the Ward. Candidate Jasmin Santana came in first with 383 votes, followed by incumbent Brian Cummins with 362 votes.

In contrast, Ward 13 and Ward 17, which also had City Council primary races, had voter turnout above the city average with 14.02% of registered voters casting ballots in Ward 13, and 19.88% of registered voters casting ballots in Ward 17.
