A winner is declared in a tied Salyersville City Council after a recount finds some votes were mis-counted.
On election night, Magoffin County election clerks said Jeff Ross and Ray Nickles tied with 224 votes each.
During a recanvass Thursday morning , officials discovered some absentee votes were not counted correctly on election night.
After that, officials counted the votes a third time, and declared Ross the winner by two votes.
“It feels great! It feels great! I can't wait to get working for the city and the people of Salyersville and the whole county of Magoffin County,” Ross said.
This is Ross' first time winning an election.
