“On the second ballot, Steve Gaines received 2,410 votes (49.96 percent) and J.D. Greear received 2,306 (47.80 percent). Some 108 illegal ballots were disallowed and prevented either candidate from receiving a majority.”
The way I calculate it three more votes for Gaines and he wins. Never seen this before…although there are always some goofballs who can’t get a ballot right.
I bet three Trads were gabbing in the bookstore and blew the election (but they would have had to drag a likeminded friend in to the hall to vote making four to get the majority).
