Indiana Libertarian Won Partisan Race by One Vote

Source: Ballot Access News

On November 8, 2011, the town of Henry, Indiana, held partisan elections for Town Council. Each race was at-large but each race was a separate election. Two of the seats only had a Republican running. For the third seat, two candidates were on the ballot, Libertarian Dennis Denney and Republican incumbent Rebecca Hammer. The final results show that Denney received 93 votes and Hammer received 92. Thanks to Rick Hasen and Robbin Stewart for this news.

Hammer could ask for a recount, but she probably will not do so. Shirley has a population of 830 and is in east central Indiana, in Henry County. The Libertarian Party won three other partisan elections around the U.S. on November 8. The others were: (1) Susan Bell, Town Judge, Hagerstown, Indiana; (2) Miccah Shepherd, Clerk-Treasurer of Claypool, Indiana; (3) Erik Viker, Selingsgrove, Pennsylvania Town Council.
