County candidate who lost election challenge going to court

July 9, 2018

BELLE FOURCHE, S.D. (AP) — The loser of a Butte County commissioner race is going to court after falling short in a ballot recount by one vote.

Unofficial results of the June 5 primary showed James Ager winning the District 1 commissioner’s seat by two votes over Karen Wagner. Wagner requested a recount, but she was still determined to be the loser — this time by just one vote.

The Black Hills Pioneer reports Wagner is appealing, alleging the recount board appointed by a Fourth Circuit Court judge didn’t follow proper procedure. Ager says he disagrees with that contention.
