Recount results are complete in Habersham County District 1 race for Commissioner

By Steve Winslow Anchor/Reporter

The recount is complete in Habersham County, but an incumbent county commissioner's request for the recount does not create the results he was seeking.

Officials with Habersham County say that the recound was requested by Bruce Palmer shortly after the May 21 General Primary votes were tallied.  Commissioner Palmer found himself in third place in the General Primary for his re-election bid.

Monday's recount netting zero change in the collected votes, leaving candidates Kelly Woodall and Eric Holbrooks as the top two finalists for the Tuesday, June 18 runoff. 

Woodall received 2,098 votes in May, with Holbrooks gathering 1,707 votes to Palmer's 1,687 votes. 

Just over 21 percent of Habersham County's eligible voters took part in the General Primary in May.
