As of Thursday, 138 Baker County voters have changed their registration to Republican this year, a shift that allows them to vote in the two all-Republican county commissioner races in the May 20 primary.

The majority of the registered voters who have switched their affiliation to the GOP since Jan. 1 were previously registered as Democrats.

According to records from County Clerk Tami Green’s office, 91 of the 138 registered voters who changed their affiliation to Republican this year had been registered as Democrats.

Another 28 were previously not affiliated with any party, and 14 had been registered as Independents.

For the Baker City Herald

Last year’s bombing at the Boston Marathon didn’t deter Baker City’s Mike Knutson and Davey Peterson from signing up for the 2014 race — if anything, it encouraged them to go.

“It’s always a celebration,” Knutson said. “This year, because of last year, will be even more of a celebration.”

The 118th Boston Marathon will be Monday, April 21, which is Patriots’ Day in Massachusetts.
