Harrison received 4,262 votes, or 66 percent of the 6,432 ballots cast.
Of the other two nominees for president, the Rev. Dr. David P.E. Maier received 1,906 votes, or nearly 30 percent, and the Rev. Dr. Herbert C. Mueller Jr. received 264, or 4 percent.
Votes were cast by some 78 percent of the total 8,201 district-convention delegates who were eligible to vote.
The ballots were tallied by Election-America and reported to LCMS Secretary Rev. Dr. Raymond Hartwig, who announced the results July 6.
President-elect Harrison and other LCMS officers — to be elected at the Synod’s 65th Regular Convention July 20-25 in St. Louis — will be installed in September.
