Elections officials are calling Bay County’s fist-ever Super Tuesday a success.

Things appear to have gone smoothly as voters in four cities turned out at the polls. And there were some upsets.

Callaway has a new mayor. Challenger Ken Meer beat Incumbent Ray Boevink, who has been mayor of Callaway for the past eight years. Meer says it was a tough campaign, but he's happy with the outcome. Unlike Callaway, Lynn Haven's Mayor, Walter Kelley kept his job by bringing in more than three quarters of the vote.
