Few changes made to final election results

Friday, August 13, 2010

Bedford County Election Commission met Thursday evening to certify the local results of the Aug. 5 general and primary elections, making only minor changes to the totals announced on election night. No outcomes were changed in contested races.

In the Republican primary, gubernatorial candidate Ron Ramsey's local total rose from 1,503 to 1,504, while congressional candidate Jim Tracy's total rose from 3,061 to 3,062.

In the 4th District race for Bedford County Board of Commissioners, write-in Anita Epperson received 113 votes, up from 112 on election night.

In the 3rd District commission race, write-in Georgina Vaughn-Lanier was not credited with any votes; local election coordinator Summer Leverette said that was because Vaughn-Lanier had withdrawn her request to have write-in votes counted.

The biggest change was in the uncontested Bell Buckle town election. Election night totals had incumbent Mayor Dennis Webb with 80 votes, alderperson James Anderson with 77 and alderperson Jenny Hunt with 68. The revised totals have Webb with 87 votes, Anderson with 82 and Hunt with 72.

Here are the certified local totals for the major contested races. I indicates an incumbent, W indicates a write-in candidate:
