In a race for Hancock County Commission, Republican challenger Tommy Ogden has decided to request a recount after provisional and absentee votes declared incumbent Jeff Davis the winner by just 10 votes this week.

On election night, Ogden was the unofficial winner with an eight-vote lead.

The recount will be held by the board of canvassers, including Commissioner Paul Cowey and Commissioner Joe Barnabei.

There will be a three-day waiting period between when Ogden files and when the recount starts. Since that will fall around the holiday, they are still waiting to finalize details on a day, time and location that the recount will take place.
