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.
No military ballots were received, leaving only four provisional ballots to be counted by the county's board of elections Friday afternoon. With Crow holding an eight-vote lead, those four ballots won't change the outcome. Two were rejected and one approved as of 4:22 p.m. Friday afternoon.
Stephens has requested a recount, which will take place Thursday beginning at 9 a.m.
Officials had to wait until 4 p.m. Friday in the event that ballots were received from U.S. military personnel. At one point, officials said there could be 15 military ballots to count.
