BREVARD COUNTY • VIERA, FLORIDA – In the closest races of the 2016 Primary Elections in Brevard County, and after a recount on Saturday, the Brevard County Supervisor of Elections has declared Bob Harvey and Micah Loyd as the winners for their respective seats on the Canaveral Port Authority Commission.

Harvey defeated incumbent Bruce Deardoff  in District 4 by 121 votes out of 38,951 cast, while Loyd edged Glenn Willis in District 2 by just 61 votes out of almost 40,000 cast.

“It was a busy Saturday in the Supervisor of Elections’ office,” said Brevard County Supervisor of Elections Lori Scott.

“Our staff spent the day conducting machine recounts in both the Canaveral Port Authority District 2 and District 4 races.”

The Canaveral Port Authority District 2 race remained a margin of less than .25 percent after the machine recount was completed.

Therefore, per Florida Statute, an additional manual recount was conducted in that race.

“Upon completion of all recount procedures, both Bob Harvey and Micah Loyd remained the respective winners in the Canaveral Port Authority District 2 and District 4 races,” said Supervisor Scott.
