Recount reaffirms it: Plagge wins Supervisor District II, 206-203
A vote recount in the Republican primary race for Franklin County Supervisor District II confirmed incumbent Jerry Plagge as the winner on June 10.
Gary McVicker, Plagge’s opponent, challenged the results of the June 3 GOP primary election after he was defeated by a three-vote margin. McVicker petitioned for a vote recount after the election results were canvassed on June 9, and the recount was held the following day inside the Franklin County Law Enforcement Center.
A three-person board hand-counted each ballot and then ran them through a vote-counting machine, but the original results were upheld – Plagge was confirmed the winner of the primary, 206-203.
