Votes canvassed Tuesday

Votes in Kanawha County are being canvassed today and the big task at hand is counting all of those provisional ballots. The Kanawha County Commission will be seated as the board of canvassers and part of their responsibility will be to decide if about 1100 votes can be counted. A race to watch as the votes are canvassed, is that in the House of Delegates 35th District. House of Delegates member Bobbie Hatfield is trailing by 64 votes. There were eight candidates for four spots and Republican newcomer J.B. McCuskey finished in fourth place just 64 votes ahead of the incumbent, Bobbie Hatfield. It's mathmatically possible for Hatfield to gain 64 votes today as the provisional ballots are verified, but some say it's unlikely.
