Dougherty County - A close race and a recount keeps Jeff Sinyard in the Dougherty County Commission Chairman's seat. His opponent, James Bush, requested a recount after losing by 47 votes. Today he lost by 46.
One by one, nearly 16,000 ballots recounted. Bush says, "I reflected on this the night of the elections and decided for me and for my supporters I would ask for this recount."
It took election workers more than five hours to re-run all the ballots from 31 precincts through machines. Board of Elections Chairman, Walter Blankenship, says, "We are counting Democratic ballots. We'll count same way we counted the first time."
The results, Sinyard won again with a difference of 46 votes instead of 47. Sinyard responds, "Obviously we were pleased. When you have two campaigns that worked this hard, it's hard for any side to lose."
The recount didn't show that much of a difference, but it did show a vote count change. Tuesday's results, James Bush got 7,940 votes and he lost six votes today at 7,934. Jeff Sinyard started with 7,987 votes and he lost seven votes in today's recount at 7,980.
Voter Registration officials say the loss of votes may be because if a ballot comes back spoiled a voter was not present during the recount to make a change. In that case, workers had to override votes.
Sinyard agreed with Bush's request to ask for a recount. He says with such a close race, he would have done the same thing.
