Woodland Recount

Posted on 30th November 2011 at 08:44

Cowlitz County Elections now reports that the Woodland City Council race between Scott Perry and Robert Ripp is dead even, with a hand recount to be conducted early next week. As the Canvassing Board was certifying the November 8th general election results, another vote for Ripp was found, giving each candidate 569 votes. Elections Supervisor Carolyn Myers says that the recount will be conducted on Monday and Tuesday of next week, with a canvas of that recount set for 4 pm next Tuesday. If things are still tied after the recount, then a coin flip will decide who gets the seat.
