Election results certified

Cain becomes Hahira mayor by five votes

VALDOSTA — Hahira will officially have a new mayor come the New Year.

Lowndes County Board of Elections certified votes Friday with no real changes from results tallied Tuesday from Election Day and three weeks of early voting.

Though considered too close to call Tuesday night, Hahira mayoral candidate Bruce Cain kept his slim five-vote lead over contender Rose Adams, with 168-163 votes. Cain will become Hahira’s new mayor in January, with incumbent Mayor Wayne Bullard receiving only 65 votes.

 Of the county’s 48,434 registered voters, 7,846 cast ballots, which is 16.2 percent of registered voters casting ballots in the election that chose new municipal officers in Lowndes County cities and countywide approved the Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) VII.
