(BEDFORD) - The Mitchell Mayoral Race recount is underway in Lawrence County Circuit Court.

Republican candidate Dan Terrell and his attorney, David M. Brooks, and independent candidate John "JD" England and his attorney, Dave Smith, along with along with three members of the recount commission - Democrat Phil Tincher, Republican Paul Ford and Voting Machine Mechanic Aaron Staggs will review the absentee ballots.

Monroe Circuit Court Judge E. Michael Hoff will oversee the proceedings.

The recount is in response to Terrell's claim that some of those votes were cast by residents that did not live within the Mitchell city limits.

The ballots that are deemed challengeable, if any, will then go in front of the recount commission on Dec. 16 for final review.

England defeated former Republican Mayor Dan Terrell 499-495. Democrat Eugene "Pud" Terrell received 229 votes with William H. "Bill the Truck Driver" Conley receiving 8 votes.
