At the request of Carol O'Beirne, who initial vote tallies showed losing to John VanBenschoten in the Margaretville mayoral election by three votes, there will be a recount conducted of the votes cast in last Wednesday's election.
The recount will take place tomorrow, Tuesday, March 24, and will be conducted by the Delaware County Board of Elections. Any candidate has the right to request a recount following the initial vote count.
