Election officials in Bedford County are still hard at work a day after the voting ended. Today the electoral board reviewed the poll books, statements and machine printouts from each precinct. The board has only looked at one district, but it has found inconsistancies. Poll Workers apparently transposed results and misread documentation in some cases.
That could have an effect on the district five school board race where Keith Jones beat Laura Beckman Rodes by just one vote.
At this hour the board continues to check last night's results. We'll have an update coming up on News 7 at 6.
