A problem with a precinct kept the final numbers from being posted, but several were all but assured victories in Tuesday’s election.

Among those is Sheriff Lane Cribb, who will continue his more than 20 years of work after a landslide victory. With the one precinct out, Cribb had 66 percent of the vote compared to 34 of his opponent, Darryel Carr.

Other winners were: Carl Anderson in House District 103; Alma White for Clerk of Court; Austin Beard in County Council District 5; Brian Shult in the auditor’s race; Elery Little and Gene Footman to the Board of Education.

One race too close to call was the Board of Education District 6, where a mere 20 unofficial votes separated candidates Richard Kerr and Peggy Wheeler-Cribb.

Check back later for updates as the other precinct is made available and numbers are certified.
