GOSHEN — Officials completed this year’s vote count Friday, in an election that broke the record for most ballots casts in Elkhart County history.

In all, 75,405 ballots were casts in the county in the Nov. 3 general election, meaning 59.88 percent of registered voters in the county voted. That is a lower percentage than in some previous elections, but because the number of registered voters has steadily increased over the years, the county was still able to break the record for the actual number of voters who had their voices heard.
