Mark Reichert wins Scotts Bluff County Commissioners seat

More than two weeks after the May Primary, the people of District I in Scotts Bluff County have a new County Commissioner.

Today, a recount of votes was conducted for Mark Reichert and Chuck Cowan after the County Canvassing Board said only five votes separated the two candidates.

Scotts Bluff County Clerk Vera Dulaney says that the recount was completed at 3 p.m. Thursday, and Mark Reichert won by a vote of 274 to 269. Reichert will replace three-term Commissioner Mike Marker, who did not seek re-election.

Dulaney say the last recount the county had was four years ago, when there was a tie in the Mitchell School Board race.
