Interestingly, Tomey and Delair were neck-and-neck nearly the entire race. At one point, they were only four votes apart. But Tomey was able to beat out the incumbent by about 300 votes, and it was Ronald Sparks who had command of the board nearly the entire night. The land transfer tax was front and center in Brunswick County as well. It would apply to the sale of a home, land or business. These aren't final numbers. But here's where it stands as of now: Nineteen percent for with 1,334 votes, 80.58 percent were against the tax with 5,534 votes. The one-time tax of 0.4 percent brought voters out to the Brunswick County Board of Elections Tuesday night. The Brunswick County Board of Elections says final results won't be made available for another half hour or so. Columbus County voted for the One Quarter Cent County Sales & Use Tax (50.9% for, 49.1% against). Pender County voted against the Property Transfer tax Referendum (76.66%) and Incorporation of the Town of Hampstead (71.55%).
