Will Saratoga Springs Special Election Results be Recounted?


An election that seemed to decide there would be no change to Saratoga Springs form of government may not be over.

According to the Times Union, Gordon Boyd, a member of the city's now-dissolved Charter Review Commission is asking for a recount of the vote on the proposal, asking the New York State Supreme Court to impound Nov. 7's nearly 9,000 ballots.

The state Board of Elections allows a voter to seek a court order for a recount or a re-canvassing, but the petitioner must show that a mistake was made.

On Election Day, the yes votes were up by 48.

After the absentees were counted on Nov. 14, the no votes dominated by 10.
