Habersham recount changes nothing

The recount of ballots cast in the May 21 General Election Primary for District 1 Habersham County Commission did not change the outcome.

Monday’s recount of the 5,492 votes cast showed that the numbers certified by the Habersham County Board of Elections and Voter Registration last week are correct.

Those totals are as follows:

  • Eric Holbrooks – 1,707 votes
  • Christopher Bruce Palmer (incumbent) – 1,687 votes
  • Kelly M. Woodall – 2,098 votes

Holbrooks and Woodall will face each other in a runoff for the District 1 seat on Tuesday, June 18

Palmer had asked for the recount..
