Hubbard candidatedemands a recount
WARREN -- After losing the election by three votes, Hubbard 1st Ward Council candidate Albert Patrick is demanding a recount.
The Trumbull County Board of Elections will use machines Monday to again tally the 359 ballots cast in the ward's two precincts.
"In 28 years, I've never seen it change" from one count to another, said Lyn Augustine, deputy director of the board.
The recount, which should only take a few minutes, will cost Patrick $20.
Election night returns had Patrick trailing incumbent Bonnie Viele by one vote, 178 to 179. Two weeks later, the official results, which included ballots cast by voters who had changed address, increased Viele's vote count to 181.
