3-week wait for Haskins vote recount


HASKINS – Council candidates Bradley Heft and Edward Jacobs will have about three weeks to wait to find
out who will be sworn in on council in January.
As reported in Wednesday’s Sentinel-Tribune, the two are tied with 113 votes each. But when the election
result story was written late Tuesday night, it showed Jacobs had won a seat as the fourth highest
vote-getter, and Heft tied for fifth place.
After Jacobs was interviewed as a winner, new results came from the Board of Elections showing Heft had
moved up to fourth place, tying Jacobs.
"I’d like to thank the voters who voted for me," Heft said by telephone Wednesday night.
"I will wait until the Board of Election officials have the results between Edward and me."

Heft said he called the board of elections and was told that provisional ballots will be counted and a
recount taken of votes because of the tie.
Heft added if it is still a tie between him and Jacobs, officials will flip a coin for the winner.
