With the election three weeks from tomorrow, now there is a re-count demand.

It comes from Robert Abbott, the losing candidate in last week's District Six race.

Abbott placed third in a four man race that has Ed DeFore and Adah Roberts in next month's run-off.

We spoke with Bibb Elections Supervisor Jeanetta Watson about Abbott's appeal for a recount.

"We're trying to fit it in one election and prepare for another. Everything is due right now, so that means we need to stop what we are doing and take time to do that." -- Jeanetta Watson, Bibb Board of Elections Supervisor

Abbott declined to talk with WGXA today about his recount request.
