Elrod Picks Up Extra Vote In Recount
Jon Elrod (R) picked up an extra vote in a recount of the District 97 state representative race, giving Elrod an 8-vote win over incumbent Rep. Ed Mahern (D). The State Board of Accounts result will now go before the Indiana Recount Commission where lawyers for both sides will make their arguments. Expect the Commission to declare Elrod the official winner soon.
