13,477 registered voters turned out to the polls last Tuesday for the General Election. Because the Friday after the election fell on Veterans Day this year, the results of the election could not be certified until noon on Monday, Nov. 14, County Clerk Kelly Waggoner said.
"Nothing was that close," Waggoner reported. "We have, I would say, less than thirty individual votes in question."
These votes include both the provisional ballots cast last Tuesday as well as a small number of ballots from members of the military.
Until the results are certified, there can be no challenge of the results. As it stands, the 48.5 percent turnout unofficially decided two contested races in Howell County. For more coverage of these contested races, see page XXXX.
