Hale County Probate Judge race still not decided

The Tuscaloosa News reports: Hale County residents won't know until next week who won the election for probate judge.

Election officials had to repair a broken voting machine before tallying the votes Wednesday. But the 3,650 write-in votes won't be counted and certified until Nov. 16.

The race is now between three-term incumbent Leland Avery, who received 3,350 votes, and write-in candidate Arthur Crawford Sr.

Rebublican Bob Hoggle is out of the race with 1,409 votes. -- Read the whole story --> Hale County probate judge race unresolved | TuscaloosaNews.com

Note: Crawford won the Democratic Primary, but was disqualified for failing to file some campaign-finance reports on time. He launched a write-in campaign.
