Madison County Recount Changes Results By One

By  | 

When all the votes were counted election day, only 35 separated the two candidates for Madison County Judge.

After Tuesday's recount, the end result stayed the same, but the race turned out a little tighter. The recount reaffirmed Republican Art Henson's win over Democrat Wilburn Bullard III.

But Henson's original winning margin of 35 votes will now go in the record books as a 34 vote victory.

Madison County's current judge, Cecil Neely, did not run after 12 years behind the bench.
