(11/19/10): Hunter Down By 23 Votes for Juvenile Court Judge
The Hunter Campaign was notified that they were down by 23 votes. This will trigger an automatic recount because the total count is within .50%.
CINCINNATI, OHIO - November 19, 2010 - The Hunter Campaign was
notified that they were down by 23 votes. This will trigger an
automatic recount because the total count is within .50%. The recount
is at no cost to the Hunter campaign. However, the Board of Elections
did not count over 800 ballots cast in African American precincts.
These ballots were not counted because American citizens were directed
to the wrong table when casting their votes. "The citizen went to the
right polling location but were directed to the wrong table,"
Christopher Smitherman, president of the Cincinnati NAACP said. If
these votes are counted Hunter most likely will be declared the
winner. Hunter would be the first African American Juvenile Court
Judge elected in the history of Hamilton County. "Hunter's win would
be as historic as Obama's election to President of the United States
of America. The Cincinnati NAACP demands that every vote be counted.
The Cincinnati NAACP will do everything in its power to ensure that
every vote is counted in this race," Smitherman said. The Cincinnati
NAACP has advised Hunter to not concede the election.
