Election commission decides on recount in Co. Clerk race

Posted: May 29, 2014 - 5:28pm

The Faulkner County Election Commission will be doing a recount in Republican primary election for the position of Faulkner County Clerk.

Candidate Marvin Lessman claims that he was at the courthouse about a minute before 4:30 p.m. closing time on May 22, the last day to file for a recount, and the door was locked. This is disputed by the election commission and the county clerk’s office, who say he didn’t show up at all on the 22nd. 

“We’ve re-visited the Lessmann recount and we have decided to err on the side of caution and do a recount for him,” Election Committee Chairman Betty Pickett said.

The recount will be done on Friday morning at 11 a.m., Pickett said.

No duty more sacred

No duty more sacred in a democracy than to assure that every vote is counted. This will surely put the matter to rest.

I agree

Good decision. That way ole Marvin will have no room to complain about getting his tail kicked. Never mind on that thought, he will find a way to complain anyway.

"The recount will be done at 11 AM Friday"

Right before closing time.

Just kidding...

After the recount is completed and he still loses I hope that squeaky wheel has to eat every ballot.
