Historically, Democrats have fared well in Trimble County’s elections. However, in a down-to-the-wire judge-executive’s race, it was the Republican candidate who emerged with more votes Tuesday night.

Republican Todd Pollock earned 1,560 votes against Democrat Eddy Callis, who earned 1,472 votes, a difference of 88 votes. Pollock carried absentees and nine of the 12 precincts, except West Milton, Palmyra and East Bedford where Callis had more support from voters. The duo deadlocked in the South Milton precinct with 153 votes a piece.
