Eddie Rowland the unofficial winner in Monroe District 2 Commissioner race

Ham to ask for recount in runoff race

Eddie Rowland is the unofficial winner of the Monroe County District 2 Commissioner seat. He received 652 votes, while his opponent, Chris Ham, received 645 votes.

Chris Ham can request a recount if he wants to before they declare the vote official, but there won’t be one if he doesn’t request one. 

"It's not over yet," Ham said. "We'll have a game plan tomorrow, and we'll get with the judge to see exactly the process to go though and we'll go from there."

After Tuesday's unofficial results were announces Rowland says his supporter will just need to be patient. 

"With seven votes, I certainly understand," Rowland said. "Let's make sure we got it right. Let's make sure those seven votes stand, and it being as close as it was, I want to make sure it's right as well."
