Vote tied again for Landis mayor

The Rowan Board of Elections has determined after its hand-to-eye recount, the Landis mayor’s race is once again back to a tie.
Incumbent Dennis Brown and challenger James Furr both have 195 votes.
The board met today to recount the ballots and tally them by hand. Last week the tie was broken after the ballots were totaled through a tabulator machine.
There are two provisional ballots that must be counted and certified on Tuesday morning. It was discovered in early research one provisional ballot did not count because the voter was not a registered voter, said Elections Director Nancy Evans.
The board can research ahead of Tuesday’s canvass the validity of a ballot without knowing who the vote was cast for on the ballot.
See Tuesday’s Post for more details.
