voteA recount has changed the results of this week’s municipal election in Holt County.

The recount stopped what was shaping up to be an interesting legal battle in efforts to break a tie.

The preliminary count in the vote for two seats on the Board of Aldermen in the city of Craig showed Trevor Drewes as the winner, but Richard Thomas and Brude Ideker were each listed as receiving 17 votes for the second seat.

The recount on Friday listed Thomas as the second-place vote getter with 19.
