Givens remains nominee for commissioner
Kerry Givens remains the apparent Democratic nominee for the Comanche County District 3 commissioner race, but the Comanche County Election Board won't verify those results until Monday.
The election board and two teams of volunteer counters spent all day Friday recounting the 14 precincts, absentee and mail-in ballots that comprised the June 26 election where Comanche County Democrats in the western commissioner district selected their nominee to face off with Republican Alvin Cargill in November. According to preliminary results filed with the Oklahoma Election Board, only 25 votes separated Givens from his challenger, Randy Bass. According to the state website's preliminary results, Givens won 1,639 votes, or 50.38 percent of the total cast, while Bass won 1,614, or 49.62 percent.
