The final results did not change when the Macon-Bibb County Board of Elections certified runoff tallies Friday night, including that for the District 2 commission race.
The final vote count in the District 2 race did change, however.
Henry Ficklin gained two votes and Larry Schlesinger one in their bid to become the District 2 commissioner in the new consolidated government.
Schlesinger won with 1,711 votes, one more than Tuesday nights total showed. Ficklin finished with 1,685 votes, two more than he had Tuesday.
Ficklin said he would ask for a recount, which would take place next week, possibly Wednesday.
Ficklin, who stood watching the tally of provisional votes through a window at the elections office, said, We knew that the provisional ballots were not gonna change anything one way or the other. It was not gonna take us out of the 1 percentage range that we have to be in in order to ask for a recount.
The new difference in results, 26 votes, falls within the range that the law allows for a recount. Thats 1 percent of the total number of votes cast, which was 3,396 votes in the District 2 race.
With a recount looming, Ficklin said, Anything could happen.
