After this week's primary, Montgomery County will be getting fresh representation in the County Council and most likely in the General Assembly.
Even with absentee ballots still being counted Montgomery County Councilwoman Duchy Trachtenberg has conceded the race for her at-large council seat.
The three other at-large incumbents won and--in all likelihood--they'll be joined by Hans Reimer, who pulled in the second most votes of the four.
The Democrats now go on to face Republicans in the fall, but the county leans heavily democratic.
Even so, Reimer says, he's now focused on November.
"As a newcomer, I'm gonna have to work very hard in this general election to introduce myself to all voters and convey that I'm looking to represent everyone, regardless of their political affiliation," Reimer says.
Unofficial election results show District 14 state senator Rona Kramer was defeated by 101 votes by delegate Karen Montgomery.
Some ballots are still coming in, but it's expected that Montgomery will face Republican Eric Cary of Brookeville in the fall.
