Barrow County elections supervisor Monica Franklin has scheduled for 2 p.m. today a recount of last week’s votes in the Barrow County Board of Commissioners District 2 race. Former commissioner Bill Brown, who was on the short end of the 710-700 results in the July 31 Republican Party primary, requested the recount.
Franklin said she would reprocess both the paper ballots and the electronic voting machine cards for that race. She said she doesn't foresee a change in the outcome.
In the race results that Franklin on Friday certified to the Georgia Secretary of State's Office, Winder businessman Kenny Shook was the winner.
For an update on the results of the recount, check back this afternoon.
