There was a time when a recount would take place when the results were very close.

That practice is part of the past.

Angelo B + biscotti wide

Angelo’s biscotti making days are coming to an end unless he gets in some quality time with his wife to whip up another batch on a Saturday morning.

Monday night the vote count that was on the city web site had Angelo Bentivegna 39 votes ahead of Blair Lancaster which means on December 3rd he will be sworn in as the member of city council will be Angelo.

Angelo BENTIVEGNA, 2747 votes, 35.73%
Blair LANCASTER, 2708 votes, 35.22%

The Clerk’s office advised the Gazette that “the only automatic recount is in the case of a tie. Otherwise it requires a court order.

Lancaster does have the option of asking a Judge to order a recount of the votes.  How does one recount votes that were done electronically ?

The official results from the city will be out before the end of the week.
