Mayoral candidate Al Dinuccio filed for a recount yesterday by submitting the required signatures to the Clerk’s office. The prospect for success is minimal, as the voting machines have a strong track record, but I think it best to do the recount and allow the City and both campaigns to achieve closure on a very close election.
Candidates must submit recount requests by precinct, with each precinct requested separately. Dincuccio requested hand recounts in each of the twelve precincts. After signature certification by the Clerk the petition will be forwarded to the Board of Registrars, who will meet Monday to set a date for the actual count.
