District Court II - Forks Judge Erik Rohrer took a break from collecting his campaign signs the morning after Election Day 2012 for breakfast at the Forks Coffee Shop on the morning of Nov. 7. The first read out of Clallam County Election's Office results had Rohrer handily defeating his opponent Chris Melly in the race for a vacant Clallam County Superior Court Judge Position 1 seat. The first tally in the county-wide election had Rohrer with 12,210 votes (56.13%) vs. Melly with 9,544 votes (43.87%). There are still approximately 6000 votes left to count, with the first print out covering the bulk of votes from Clallam County in the election, a total of 26,870.
Incumbent Clallam County Commissioner Mike Chapman was also reelected in the general election. 

Voters in the Forks-Beaver-Bogachiel precincts favored Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney over re-elected President Barack Obama by a count of 596-391.
