Members of the boards are elected to rotating eight-year terms, and the Republican sweep still leaves Democrats in control of all three boards.

GOP University of Michigan regents Andrea Fischer Newman of Ann Arbor and Andrew Richner of Grosse Pointe Park were re-elected with 26 and 24 percent of the vote respectively, with 96 percent of precincts reporting early Wednesday.

In the Michigan State trustees race, Republicans Brian Breslin and Mitch Lyons won with 26 percent and 25 percent respectively.

In the Wayne State governors race, Republican Danialle Karmanos and GOP incumbent Diane Dunaskiss won with 26 percent and 25 percent of the vote respectively. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
