The Langston Hughes precinct results were the final ones election officials counted.
Shew said the precinct was the busiest in the county with a 22 percent turnout. Poll workers faced a rush there just before the 7 p.m. closing time, so it took them longer to complete their job.
The Langston Hughes supervising judge became ill a few hours before the polls closed, and Shew’s office brought in a substitute. Poll workers wanted to take a little longer at the end of the day to make sure they were covering their bases.
“I’m fine with that,” Shew said. “They made sure they did everything right.”
