Two Candidates Tied For Elkhorn City Council

An Elkhorn City Council race still doesn't have a winner yet because the two candidates are tied.

The Pike County Clerk says Roxanne Blankenship and Angie Creech both received 196 votes. Both candidates say they thought they lost last night, so this is a surprise. The clerk says the Pike County Board of Elections has to determine how to break the tie.

"The excitement is just overwhelming. You just don't know what is going to happen, anticipation," Blankenship said.

"I think it goes to show you what one vote does. People don't think their votes are important and one vote can make a difference in the outcome of an election," said Creech.

The clerk expects a recount next week and if the result is the same, she says it could literally come down to a coin toss to decide the winner.
