JUNEAU, Alaska | Republican takes House race by 1 vote after recount
JUNEAU, Alaska— Republican Bart LeBon has won an Alaska state House race by one vote after a ballot recount, officials said.
Before Friday’s recount, LeBon and Democrat Kathryn Dodge were tied with 2,661 votes apiece.
Recount results showed LeBon with 2,663 votes while Dodge had 2,662 votes, after LeBon picked up two votes and Dodge picked up one, according to the Alaska Division of Elections.
A much talked about mystery ballot found weeks ago on a table in a voting precinct ended up playing no role in the race outcome.
