ALLIANCE — A recount has confirmed that Doug Hashman has won a seat on the Box Butte County Board.
The recount Thursday showed the same 20-vote margin of victory for Hashman over Marvin Toedtli. Hashman got 2,330 votes, versus 2,310 for Toedtli.
The recount was automatic because the margin of votes between Hashman and Toedtli was less than 1 percent of the total.
Hashman will be sworn in on Jan. 3. He succeeds board member Cap Brixius of Alliance, who didn’t seek re-election.
