Recount Set for Today in Trumann School Board Run-Off Election

HARRISBURG, AR - Election commissioners in Poinsett County will meet this afternoon to re-count votes in last week's run-off elections for the Trumann School Board.

The re-count stems from alleged problems with a voting box that contained ballots from last Thursday's election between Lester Parker and Jeff Jones, a race that originally showed Parker winning 50.5 percent of the vote.

Both candidates plan to be on hand for this afternoon's re-count at the Poinsett County Courthouse in Harrisburg.

Region 8 News will also be on hand and will have more details on the outcome as they become available.
