There are 1, 222 provisional and absentee ballots which, by
law, won’t be counted until November 19. Two issues with narrow results - Ron
Feathers’ victory over incumbent Commissioner Cora Marshall and the defeated Children’s
Services Levy –
could possibly (but
not likely) change when those ballots are counted.
Hupp explains what would happen if results shift.
“Dependent on what the shift would be, you’d total up all
the votes for that particular or issue, and then you multiply and get your half
of one percent. The differential has to be within that half a percent. If it
is, it’s a mandatory recount. If it’s not (within a half percent) then that’s
considered the final result unless a candidate or an issue committee would request
a recount in which the cost is $55 per precinct.”
A countywide recount would cost $3,080.
