Recounts nets no change

A recount of ballots cast in the race for Jefferson Township trustee has yielded no change, the Logan County Board of Elections reported this morning.

Scott Armentrout and Anthony Bernard were elected among four candidates to serve as township trustees.

The gap between Mr. Bernard and Gary Lockwood was within the half-percent threshold for a recount, following the election board’s certification of votes last week.

However, there was no change in the totals as Mr. Bernard collected 259 votes and Mr. Lockwood netted 256 votes.

The next regular election board meeting is Dec. 12.
