WSESD Recount Results

Official recounts are in, for the two three-year terms for Brattleboro representatives on the WSESD Board of Directors. Town Clerks of Brattleboro, Dummerston, Guilford and Putney, submitted their recount results to the WSESD Clerk at the Superintendent of Schools Office, and the end result didn’t change the outcome of the vote.
The numbers have increased by a few votes for each of the three candidates, but the two winners of this election remain Timothy “Tim” Maciel and Colleen Savage.
Town Clerks report that there are a couple of reasons for adjustments in the numbers during a recount. One reason is that when a tabulator is used by multiple users, it can jam. Upon Guilford Town Clerk’s call to the Secretary of State, it was learned that ballot jams are a common cause for discrepancies. The Guilford tabulator had jammed on more than one occasion on Election Day as voters inserted their ballots. During the re-count, with fewer users and a consistent manner of use, it did not jam at all.
