County Clerk Kevin Alexander's office will be closed next Tuesday, June 16th as he and his staff will be attending the Spring County Clerk Convention on that day. Alexander said he's missed several training sessions due to being short-staffed and getting the office up and running during his new term. The convention is actually a 4-day conference, but the office will only be closed on Tuesday. Normal hours will resume the next day.
He also said that the state-wide election recanvass in the governor and agriculture commissioner's race has been completed. A recanvass is not the same as a recount, but where each county adds their district totals one more time. A recount is counting each individual vote again. Alexander said there was no change for Edmonson County's totals as they added up the same once again.
The recanvass was requested by republican gubernatorial candidate James Comer, who lost by only 83 votes, and republican Ag Commissioner candidate Richard Heath, who lost by 1427 votes. Both candidates conceded each of their races upon completion of the recanvass.
