Ready for a Recount

by Jessica Cervantez

There will be a recount in Trinity county for the position of county judge.

A judge denied an injunction to stop the recount. Jimmie Thornton lost to Mark Evans by 13-votes in the election earlier this month. Thornton asked for a recount.

But, the declared winner Evans tried to stop the recount from happening.

There will be approximately 35-hundred hand-counted ballots. The count will begin Wednesday morning at 8.
