Charlie Adkins is the official winner of his Athens County Commission race against Gary Edwards.

The Board of Elections conducted the official count today.

Edwards closed the gap to 78 votes but a board official says that does not warrant an automatic recount.

Adkins, a Democrat, will try to unseat Republican Larry Payne in the General Election.
