Brock wins: defeats Hawkins by 46 votes

Published: Friday, November 9, 2012 at 06:12 PM.

After the recount on Friday, Brock’s lead dropped to 46 votes — a lead which was sufficient that the Supervisor of Elections does not have to perform a manual recount.

“It is greater that 0.25 percent, which would have mandated a manual count,” said Washington County Judge Colby Peel.

 “I just want to thank the workers, they really did a great job,” said Peel. “I was afraid this was going to be a two-day job and we’d be here until after midnight.”

“I just wish more people were on hand to witness this,” said Supervisor of Elections Carol Finch Griffin. “I wish more people would come watch the process.”
