Democrats swept contested races for Grafton County offices on Tuesday.

For sheriff, Jeffrey Stiegler defeated Republican Steve Tatham, 25,050-15,812.

Karen Liot-Hil defeated Republican Brian Dear, 24,447-16,258, in the race for county treasurer.

Kelly Monahan beat out John Randlett, 24,895-15,873, in the race for register of deeds.

And in the race for register of probate, Chuck Townsend defeated Republican Paul Ingbretson, 24,540-15,957.

County Attorney Martha Ann Hornick was unopposed for reelection, as was Wendy Piper, District 1 county commissioner.

In District 2, Democrat Marth McLeod defeated Glenn Libby, 7,293-6,657.

In District 3, Republican Omar Ahern turned back a challenge from Marcia Morris, 7,028-6,810.

State Rep. Jeffrey Greeson, R-Wentworth has held onto the Grafton 6 district seat, fending off a challenge from Orford Democrate Craig Tomlinson.

Greeson won by large margins in Wentworth and Rumney (307-184 and 462-308, respectively), offsetting a lopsided win for Tomlinson in Orford, 410-237.

The overall vote count was 1,006-902 in Greeson’s favor.

Tomlinson, 71, was a first-time candidate, running in a district reshaped since 2020. Greeson, 51, won the old district by a narrow margin in 2020 and will begin his second term when the Legislature reconvenes in January.
