  • Ballot canvassing yields little change in Crawford County election totals

  • One race almost needed a coin flip to determine a winner and there was the usual myriad of write-in candidates, but besides that, there were no real surprises when the Crawford County Commissioners certified the 2010 general election votes.

  • One race almost needed a coin flip to determine a winner and there was the usual myriad of write-in candidates, but besides that, there were no real surprises when the Crawford County Commissioners certified the 2010 general election votes.
    On Friday, Commissioners spent close to two hours canvassing votes and certifying election results. Most of the time was spent reading ballots that were only counted for partial races.
    In all, there were 255 provisional ballots that were allowed, along with partial provisional ballots.
    “I think things went pretty well,” said Crawford County Clerk Don Pyle. “As with all things, there were some snags, but we got those ironed out.”
    Some of the closer races had little to no change due to provisional ballots. In the 3rd District State Rep. race, Republican Terry Calloway gained three votes to his winning total of Democrat incumbent Julie Menghini.
    Republican Thomas Hayes picked up a net of 11 votes, however was still defeated by Democrat Carl Wood for the Crawford County 3rd District seat.
