A proposal to reduce the Lancaster County Agricultural Society's board from 13 to 9 directors passed by one vote on Saturday.

Board members and the public voted through a show of hand during the society's annual meeting at the Lancaster County Event Center. A quick count revealed the cut passed 25-24.

The results came under suspicion when some voters questioned the conclusiveness of a one-vote margin. At least one asked for a written ballot vote to ensure accuracy.

However, board President Charlie Willnerd rejected the request and ruled the original vote sufficient.

The change will reduce the number of directors required to make a quorum from seven to five.

The proposal originally was made because the attendance was of directors at board meetings and functions had been down.
