Three individuals walk up the steps and into the Memorial Building in Ironwood to vote Tuesday afternoon. The mid-term election ballot contained many federal, state and local candidates and proposals. Officials said voter turnout was steady through the day.


BESSEMER - Gogebic County voters Tuesday supported a one-mill levy for ambulance services that will raise $523,548 the first year.

Voters backed levying the one mill over a three-year period by a 4,010 to 2,473 margin.

A total of 6,483 votes were cast on the ambulance issue out of 6,689 total countywide, according to initial figures from the county clerk's office. That represents about a 48 percent countywide turnout.

A breakdown of the votes by municipalities was not available Tuesday evening, when the final tallies were released after 10 p.m.
