Boone County’s clerk has not received recount request from Skala or Lovelady

Columbia’s third ward council race remains a tie, and it’s looking more likely that the issue will be decided in another election.

Boone County Clerk Brianna Lennon tells 939 the Eagle that one provisional ballot and one absentee ballot were processed during certification on Monday, but neither were in the third ward.

Incumbent City Councilman Karl Skala and challenger Roy Lovelady each have 1,102 votes. Ms. Lennon tells 939 the Eagle that candidates have the right to request a recount, but no request has been made that she’s aware of.

There’s never been a tie in a city election, until now. Lennon tells 939 the Eagle that certification continues this morning.
