BROOKHAVEN, Miss. (AP) -- Every vote counts.

Just ask the newly elected commissioner in Mississippi's Lincoln County.

Challenger Janie Sisco collected 1,580 votes from her district's six precincts.

That was one better than 20-year incumbent Charles Monroe Smith.

"Wow," Sisco said after hearing the result. "I never thought it would be that close."

But not so fast.

Vanessa Collins, a deputy circuit clerk, said Friday that Smith has asked for a re-count in the county in the southern part of the state.
