Re-counts completed in Guernsey County

Officials say issue, election results unchanged

CAMBRIDGE, Ohio -- Just over three weeks after Election Day, the Guernsey County Board of Elections has completed and finalized their counts.
On Monday, the Board conducted a recount of three issues that were, by law, subject to recount, as they were within 1/2 of 1% of the total votes cast for that issue.
In Wheeling Township, the question of a 0.5 mill additional cemetery levy was turned down by voters 30 votes against, 29 for the levy. The Tuesday recount confirmed that count, and issue is officially defeated.
In Cambridge's 2-A Precinct, a question of the Sunday sale of liquor at Mr G's on Woodlawn Ave ended in a tie on November 5. The recount confirmed the original count at 51 votes apiece. Sandra Miller, Director of the Guernsey Co Board of Elections says the issue is defeated as it did not receive a majority vote of approval.
No change in a tight race for a seat on the Rollings Hills School Board. The election night count showed challenger Cheryl Gadd defeated incumbent Rick Walters by one vote.
The Tuesday recount, adding in cross over votes from Muskingum and Noble Counties sealed the victory for Gadd, now, officially by six votes.
