One Tight Race In Gilchrist County
Published November 6th, 2012
GILCHRIST- After several hours of waiting in tonights chilly weather, Gilchrist residents outside the county court house still don't have one answer they were waiting for.
Gilchrist County still doesn't know who the next sheriff will be.
It's a very tight race, as of right now, Democrat Robert Schultz is up 40 votes to Republican Robert Roux.
As anxious as the candidates are, Schultz says that he's done he could and now it's up to the voters
"You know what? I've given the race my 200%. I've done the best that I can. There's a calm to me. Whatever the outcome is, I'd rather have one outcome over the other but I'm okay with etiher one," said Robert Schultz.
The supervisor of election says there are nine provisional ballots...those are ballots in question.
The voters apparently were registered in another county but claim to live in Gilchrist.
If Roux has just two of those votes then there will be an automatic recount Wednesday morning.
