The votes have been recounted and the results are official: Floyd Allen Fraley is the new Noble County Commissioner, beating incumbent Noble County Commissioner Bradley Peoples by a vote of 2300 to 2298 – still only a two vote margin!
This comes following an official count of all votes cast, including the addition of 54 provisional and 15 absentee ballots. The Noble County Board of Elections reports that they have met and all the votes are official, although due to the closeness of the final tally, a recount is mandated by law.
The board said they do not expect any change, but they will announce the results of the new count on November 30.
Following the November 8 election, Fraley was behind Peoples by a two count margin.
