Update-Because this election was so close, an automatic recount took place. It’s now official and final (as of May 17, 2012). Tracie Hunter won by 74 votes, so she picked up a few.
After more than year of wrangling, it’s now official–Tracie Hunter has won the Hamilton County Juvenile Court race by 71 votes. If you ever hear a voter say his or her vote doesn’t really count, please remind them of this election. Best wishes to judge-elect Hunter, who now will be serving with John Williams, who is the other juvenile court judge in Hamilton County. He was appointed to that position when Judge Karla Grady unexpectedly retired.
