No Change in Results After Stark Primary Election Numbers Certified

CANTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – The Stark County Board of Elections certified the results of the Primary Election on Tuesday.

And with the addition of provisional ballots, the outcomes of all races remain the same.

In the closest race in the county, Richard Sacco upset incumbent Peter Ferguson for the Democratic nomination for Canton 8th Ward council.

Sacco’s lead on Election Night was five votes, but with the addition of provisionals, he wins by seven votes.

It’s not close enough for an automatic recount.

There’s no Republican candidate in November.

In Beloit just across the Mahoning County line, a fire levy lost by just one vote after provisional votes were added in.
