The two candidates for Meigs County Prosecutor will have to wait to see who can officially declare victory.

Republican candidate Colleen S. Williams currently leads the razor-thin race by 115 votes.

However, there are still 235 provisional votes that haven't been counted yet, according to the Meigs County Board of Elections.

That means Independent challenger Patrick Story could still win this election after those votes are counted in 10 days.

Two levies supporting both the Pomeroy and Middleport Fire Departments faced little opposition.

Facilities for people with mental retardation and developmental disabilities and a wellness center will also be funded this year.

WOUB explored the local opinion of the wellness center in a previous report.

Randy Smith for County Commissioner, Keith Wood for County Sheriff, Peggy Yost for County Treasurer, and Diane Lynch for Clerk of Courts all declared victory in their respective races.

All election results will be certified later this month by Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted.
