A computational board meeting Friday has attracted a group of attorneys and is being delayed for more to arrive later today.

The board meets after elections to handle write-in votes and provisional ballots, among other election business. They were joined this morning by representatives for two judicial candidates: Jennifer Gilliland-Vanasdale and William “Wink Robinson”.

Robinson won both the Republican and Democrat primaries for an open Court of Common Pleas position, according to Tuesday's unofficial election results. Vanasdale lost the Democrat ticket by just six votes.

Vanasdale is calling for one of the computational board members, Gail Paserba, to recuse herself from the board's business.
