A recount Tuesday of ballots cast in Augusta Township for Democratic candidates for the positions of clerk, treasurer and trustee on the township board revealed no change in the outcome of the primary election.
The Democratic candidates in Augusta Township for clerk, treasurer and a trustee that lost their races each requested for a recount to be tabulated.
The individual that requests a recount must pay $10 per precinct that they would like to have counted again. In Augusta Township, there are three precincts.
Only one of the precincts was eligible to be recounted, as the zippered containers holding the ballots for the other two precincts were not sealed correctly - a similar problem experienced by Sylvan Township precincts.
For those two precincts, the original vote stands as the final count for the record.
On the November ballot in Augusta Township, Kathy Giszczak will be the Democratic candidate for the clerk’s office, Judy Thornton will be the Democratic candidate for a seat on the Board of Trustees and Lynda H. Dew will be the Democratic candidate for the treasurer.
