CIRCLEVILLE — The Pickaway County Board of Elections has certified the results from the Nov. 2 General Election.
John Howley, deputy director, said in addition to results reported on election night, 63 additional ballots were eligible for counting, along with 79 provisional ballots.
“While the outcome of the various contested races and issues did not change, the Village of Williamsport’s replacement levy for ambulance and emergency medical service, which had been trailing by one vote, finished in a 65-65 tie,” Howley said.
“The levy has still failed as it did not receive a majority affirmative votes, but the tie triggers an automatic recount.”
Howley said the Pickaway County Board of Elections has scheduled the recount to begin at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 23, at the board office.
