Hardin County Board of Elections Director Becky Stevenson said there are  a total of 197 regular and provisional republican ballots that are outstanding which, if all are tabulated, could change the election night results.

In the other Commissioner race, incumbent Roger Crowe easily defeated Bob Carder, 1958 to 878. Crowe will run unopposed in November.

A money issue is also hanging in the balance.

425 voted in favor of the levy, and 416 voted against. That includes Hancock County.

Stevenson said there are a total of 75 regular and provisional ballots which, if all are tabulated, could decide the fate of the issue
