County Names Constable After Tie Race

There was originally a tie in the Henderson County Constable, Precinct 4 Race. Each candidate received the exact same number of votes: 1265.

Now, the provisional and military ballots have come in, and all votes have been recounted by both hand and machine. The final standings? Incumbent, Democrat John Floyd received 1261 votes and his Republican challenger Rick Stewart, received 1266 votes.

He came out the winner by 5 votes, so after some confusion and a lot of patience, Stewart is officially the New Constable for Henderson County, Precinct 4.
