BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Only a handful of votes separate four races in Brunswick county. That’s why the board of elections conducted a recount to confirm the results from election night are accurate. The recount showed the results will stay the same.
“We essentially tabulated everything again, just like we did election night. The outcome was that the results were exactly the same. So, nothing today for any of the contests that we did a recount on were changed,” Sara Knotts, board of elections director, said.
For now, that means Bill Beer will join the H2Go commission. Plans to terminate the reverse osmosis plant could still be a reality.
“I did run on a platform but I have not yet had a chance to work with the new board yet, to discuss these matters,” Beer said.
But, the results are still not official. Knotts says results could change once they canvass the votes.
“What we’re doing on Friday has the potential to change some of these contests. So we will be adding in any supplemental absentee ballots that we received. And the board will review any provisional ballots that were cast in this election,” Knotts said.
Besides the H2Go commission, the other contests the board looked into were the boiling spring lakes commissioner, the Southport mayor and the Sunset Beach council, which is separated by 1 vote.
