Madison County Recount Yields Same Result

By  | 

There will be no change in Madison County's top elected office. A recount of November's vote for County Judge has confirmed the election was won by Republican Art Henson.

The initial total was 1,449 votes for Henson and 1,414 votes for Democrat Wilburn Bullard III. The recount completed early last week yielded slightly different numbers 1,453 to 1,420, but the same result.

A review of Henson's victory was requested by the Madison County Democratic Party who was concerned that unfamiliarity with the electronic voting machine might have cost them votes.
