Paris levy, Tallmadge council recounts set

Published:

The Portage County Board of Elections will recount ballots for Issue 20: Paris Township Additional Tax Levy and a Tallmadge City Council race on Thursday.

The recount will begin at 8 a.m. in the board of elections offices, Portage County Administration Building, 449 S. Meridian St., Ravenna.

The official ballot count has the Paris Township levy failing 148 to 147 votes after provisional ballots were included. That was a reversal of the unofficial results when the levy was winning 147 to 146.

After the Paris recount, the board will conduct a recount of the Portage ballots for three at-large seats on Tallmadge council.

The vote difference between the third candidate and Robert Maguire, the fourth in the five-way race, was small enough to require the recount.
