TIFT COUNTY, GA (WALB) - As of Wednesday night, one Tift County race still wasn't decided.

Election officials are still working to confirm provision ballots that could decide the District Two County Commission race.

Melissa Hughes-Chevers got 225 votes, three more than Frankie Mathis. Mathis is the incumbent. Chevers previously served six months as commissioner and wanted to take on the role again. She's anxious to get the final result.

"I really don't know how I'm supposed to feel because there are still some questions there but by 5 or 5:30 tomorrow, we should have an answer," said Chevers.  

Chevers says this election proves every vote is important and does count. If elected she wants to target crime and work with other commissioners to come up with ways to improve Tift County.
