LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A change in election results was issued Tuesday from the Clark County Recount Commission. 

Steven Webb was declared the winner of the third seat in the Jeffersonville City Council at-large race.

Josh Rodriguez was initially declared the winner on Election night. 

"We know that there have been a miscounts and that there are 70 to 80 ballots that are probably going to go in our favor," Rodriquez said.

Webb was sworn in Tuesday and takes office Jan. 1, but Rodriquez says he'll appeal the recount.
