Barr and Summey tied for the second open West Jefferson Alderman position. The scenario presents two options.

At least one West Jefferson voter cast a ballot that could determine that race, but the Ashe County Board of Elections have currently listed that as a provisional ballot. The voter in question may not be registered to vote in West Jefferson but the BOE is researching the situation.

If that ballot doesn’t count, then election officials said the race between Barr and Summey would be selected by chance by the Board of Elections.

The Jefferson Post will update with candidate reactions as they become available.
