Abbott demands recount in District 6 | Elections | Macon.com

Robert Abbott, who lost being in a runoff for the Macon-Bibb County Commission District 6 seat by 62 votes last week, has sent a letter to local elections officials to ask for a recount.

Abbott, who has previously said he has had a lot of issues as to how voting was conducted during last week’s special election for the new Macon-Bibb County consolidated government, lost out to second-place finisher Adah Roberts 1,063 to 1,001. Roberts carried enough ballots to force an Oct. 15 runoff with Macon City Councilman Ed DeFore, who earned 2,017 votes.
