Who says one vote can't make a difference? A race for a Lincoln County election commission seat was decided by just one vote.

Challenger Janie Sisco collected 1,580 votes from the district's six precincts, defeating 20-year incumbent Charles Monroe Smith, who fell one vote short with 1,579.

The percentage tally from the race was 49.87 percent to 49.84 percent.

Lincoln County Circuit Clerk Terry Lynn Watkins said Smith has 10 days from Tuesday's election to challenge the tally and request a recount, but for now Sisco is the winner.
