The February 2012 election results were contested. The values in parenthesis following the official counts are from the 5 absentee ballots cast. At least one individual voted both absentee and at the polling place according to a hearing held on February 23. Eliminating the one ballot would not change the outcome, therefore the tally was upheld.
