By Christina Faulkner

Dale County will return to the polls on April 16 for a run-off election between incumbent Dale County Commission Chair Steve McKinnon and Commissioner District 3 Adam Enfinger for Dale County Commission Chairman. Neither candidate brought in enough support to clearly win the race for this position. McKinnon carried 2,699 votes with Enfinger carrying 2,585 votes. The difference between two candidates was a mere 114 votes. Pinckard Mayor Bobby Borland, the third candidate for the ballot carried 17.71% of the total vote.

McKinnon said he was ready for the run-off. “We're going to put it together and go for it. We're starting at 0-0.”

“We're excited,” said Enfinger about the upcoming run-off. “I think it's going to be an opportunity for me and Chairman McKinnon to exchange ideas about the county, and for voters to have an opportunity to hear what each of us has planned for the county over the next four years.”

In the race for Dale County Commission District 2, Donald Grantham has been re-elected by a margin of 24.32%, receiving 603 of 970 votes. David Grubbs received 37.84% of votes cast.

Proposed Local Amendment Number 1 for Dale County was approved by a slim margin of 50.26% of voters.

In the race for U.S. House of Representatives, District 1, Representative Barry Moore carried Dale County by a margin of 55 34% while Jerry Carl earned 22.83% of ballots. The remainder of the state continues to count ballots at this time and the results of this race as well as those for other offices and the results of Proposed Amendment Number 1 will be published in the next issue of The Southern Star.
