EXETER – After the State Board of Elections finished a marathon tally of votes from the Nov. 6 general election, Exeter’s 130 absentee ballots moved challenger Bob Johnson into the fifth and final slot on the town council.
Trailing incumbent Dan Patterson, a local contractor, by only four on election night, Johnson wound up garnering 66 absentee votes to pull out a victory over the sole Republican councilor who tacked on 57 after the final tally.
