Supervisors verify official results for last week’s elections
The Jasper County Board of Supervisors held a canvass Friday to verify and finalize the votes from last Tuesday’s elections. While the results haven’t changed, the race for the four seats on the Newton Community School Board of Education wasn’t as close as early reports indicated.
Unofficial results indicated Darrin T. Hamilton received 461 votes; however, the canvass verified he only received 351 votes. It was also reported the newly elected board member Travis Padget received 605 votes, but he actually had 612 votes.
Jasper County Auditor Dennis Parrott explained the mix-up occurred due to write-in votes being hand counted and phoned into his office.
