Tonight, the partial Buncombe County Board of Commissioners decided to defer important decisions, as well as meetings, until everybody is seated. Missing were the District 2 representatives, because the race continues to be too close to call. Today, the State Board of Elections told the county to proceed with a manual recount of all ballots. The counting will not start until Thursday. Whatever the outcome, the race is still legally challenged. The next meeting will be January 15.
