On Thursday, May 19, 2022 the Board of Elections office received an official “Notice of Recount Request” from Sheriff candidate Dereck E. Jones of the 2022 Primary Election ballots.
A recount cannot be performed until after the Canvass of an election, due to the candidates having until 5:00pm on the next business day after a canvass to request a recount. The Canvass of an election is held 10 days after an Election per general statute. Macon County will hold its Canvass in the Board of Elections office boardroom at 11:00am on Friday, May 27, 2022.
The recount was initially scheduled to be performed on Saturday, June 4, 2022 at 9:00 am, however, due to the fact that the time overlapped with Franklin High School graduation, the recount was moved to Thursday, June 2. The recount will be held at the Macon County Community Building (1288 Georgia Road) in the gymnasium. All ballots cast in the 2022 Primary will be recounted.
A recount is open to the public.
