Incumbent Tom Crow has apparently held onto his lead over challenger Ben Stephens to keep his seat as chairman of the Jackson County Board of Commissioners. But a recount will soon be done.
No military ballots were received, leaving only four provisional ballots to be counted by the county's board of elections Friday afternoon. With an 8 vote lead, those four ballots won't change the outcome. Three were rejected and one approved, which put Crow ahead by 9 votes.
Stephens officially requested a recount later in the meeting. The recount will likely be done on Thursday, June 2, at 9 a.m.
