According to a statement from the county, the recount began Tuesday afternoon, and will continue until completion, now estimated to be by the end of the week. The recount will be witnessed by the candidates in each race or their representative attorneys, as well as appointed representatives from each candidate. The press and the public, however, are not permitted in the area of the county’s Government Services Center where it is taking place."
Approximately 36,500 ballots will be recounted.
