Final election results show no changes

Final election results from the Nov. 4 election show no change in any races, including the incredibly close Yamhill County sheriff's race. 

In final counts, Capt. Tim Svenson won 16,9993 votes or 50.1 percent, 186 more votes than his competitor Deputy Tim Casey, who won 16,747 votes or 49.4 percent. About 0.4 percent or 147 votes contained write-in votes. 

Casey has yet to concede the election to Svenson and his Facebook page has been filled with posts encouraging voters to pray and sign their ballots if they had forgotten to sign them. 

The final day to resolve ballot problems was Tuesday at 5 p.m. The clerk's office will send final certified results to the Secretary of State's office Nov. 21. 

The contentious race was one of the most expensive in county history, with more than $125,000 spent by candidates.
