Secretary Dunlap announces ballot recount for House District 110

AUGUSTA — A recount of ballots cast has been requested and scheduled for the Republican nomination for the office of State Representative in District 110, Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap announced Tuesday.

House District 110 includes parts of the towns of Oakland and Waterville. In unofficial results from the June 12 primary election, candidate Mark Andre received 210 votes, while candidate Jacob Imes received 203.

The recount is scheduled for 1 p.m. on Friday, July 6 at the Elkins Building, 19 Elkins Lane, Augusta.

Recounts are a public proceeding. House District recounts are typically completed in one day. In a recount, the representatives of each candidate and staff members from the Department of the Secretary of State manually review each ballot to determine the official vote tally.

Results of the recount will be posted on the Maine Department of the Secretary of State website and Facebook page and released to the media via email.

State law requires the State Police to collect the ballots for the recount and keep them in a secure facility until the recount has been completed. The ballots are stored in tamperproof metal containers and are closed with specially numbered security seals and locks.
