Recount Confirms Swain's Re-Election As Huntersville Mayor
A recount at the Mecklenburg Board of Elections Thursday confirmed that Huntersville Mayor Jill Swain was re-elected on Nov. 5, defeating challenger and former Mecklenburg County Commissioner Jim Puckett by a slightly wider margin than shown in election night results.
In the final official tally, Swain had 2,475 to Puckett’s 2,443 – a difference of 32 votes.
Puckett had requested a recount after the unofficial results on Nov. 5 show him losing by just 26 votes – 2,467 to 2,441.
