November 6--  Election officials in Soperton were busy recounting votes Friday morning in an effort to find a winner of Tuesday's race for mayor between Royce Fowler, Jr. and Josh Kelly.  Kelly had requested a recount when Tuesday's vote was announced and he was trailing Fowler by only two votes, 243 to 241.

The first recount included provisional votes and Election Supervisor T.J. Hudson says two of the five were accepted and were for Josh Kelly.

As a result, the vote is tied at 243 for each candidate and there will be a runoff election on Tuesday, December 1 to decide a winner.

Less than 25% of Soperton's registed voters voted Tuesday.
