Recount in PA council race to begin Wednesday

PORT ANGELES — A manual recount to decide the results of the general election race for the Position 6 seat on the Port Angeles City Council will begin Wednesday.

The recount is expected to take two days, according to the Clallam County Auditor’s Office.

The final tally after the Nov. 5 election was certified Nov. 26 was 2,532 votes, or 49.88 percent, for Navarra Carr and 2,529 votes or 49.82 percent, for Nina Napiontek, a difference of three votes and 0.06 percent.

The mandatory recount will be conducted between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday in the Elections Center in the basement of the Clallam County Courthouse at 223 E. Fourth St.

A meeting to certify the results of the recount has been scheduled for 10 a.m. Friday in the elections center.

The public is welcome to observe the process.

State law requires a manual recount when the difference between the two candidates is less than 150 votes and also less than one-fourth of 1 percent of the total votes cast for both candidates.

Outcomes in the remainder of races in the Nov. 5 election remained unchanged.

The voter turnout in Clallam County was 52.18 percent, with 28,126 ballots cast out of the 53,901 provided registered voters.
