Butler County Supervisors primary heads to recount

ALLISON (KWWL) -- The official canvass of the Butler County Primary Election shows Incumbent John Zimmerman still trailing by one vote against Tom Heidenwirth in the Republican Party nomination race for County Supervisors District 2.

Heidenwirth received 399 votes in the primary to Zimmerman's 398.  County Auditor Holly Fokkena says there were no outstanding or provisional ballots in the race and the canvass returned the same results as reported on election night.

Fokkena says Zimmerman requested a recount not long after the canvass Tuesday and the board of supervisors approved his request.  The recount is tentatively set for Monday afternoon.

It's uncertain who the winner will take on in November.  No Democrats ran for county office in the primary election.
