Decatur County unofficial results do not include 70 provisional ballots cast.  Typically there are a small percentage of these votes that are included.  In addition, overseas ballots have until Friday at noon to be received.  There may be a few of these votes yet to be received.

To be elected, a candidate must receive 50% plus one vote.  Write ins are included in the total on which the 50% is based.  For example, in the Coroner's race, if the provisional ballots produced only 2 votes, and both for Allen Ware, then Peter Bruton would have 9 more votes, but exactly 50%.  There would be a runoff in the race.

Coroner Peter J Bruton 4949 50.1%
