That turnout is the highest recorded percentage in county history. The provisional votes, which are votes that are cast outside their designated polling place and therefore must be verified, were released on Tuesday. The additional ballots widened what had been a tight race between Susman and Florian. A 54-vote gap between the candidates ended up being 74 votes after the provisional ballots were counted. On Tuesday, Green picked up 148 votes, Susman added 125, and Florian tacked on 105. Green is ending her term as the District 5 Nevada County Supervisor, and will be replaced by Owens, who was elected as supervisor in March.
