JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Following a frustrating night at the polls, the Craighead County Election Commission met Wednesday afternoon to release the results of a tight GOP judge's race.

The winner of the race is Jeff Presley with 5,553 votes to Garry Meadows who received 5,529 votes, according to unofficial results from the commission.

Presley will face incumbent Ed Hill for the Craighead County judge's seat in November.

The meeting Wednesday was called due to software issues at the election annex the night before.

We will have more details from the meeting as they are available.
