MADRAS, OR -- It'll be a couple more weeks before Jefferson County voters know who will become their newest county commissioner. That race is still too close to call.

 

Only one vote separates Mae Huston from Tom Brown.  Jefferson County Clerk Kathy Marston tells KBND News there are still ballots to be counted.  "To my knowledge, we have 53 ballots coming from other counties.  Deschutes County has 49 ballots for Jefferson County and four other counteis are sending us ballots," said Marston.  She adds, "We have 30 ballots challenged that have no signatures or the signatures don't match. So, these folks have until up to the 18th of November to fix it."

 

 

After everything is counted, an automatic recall would be triggered if there's a difference of less than 1/5 of 1% between the two candidates.  Currently, that would be anything less than a 12-vote difference.  The election must be certified by November 24th.
