Third Day of Recount Going on Fourth Day at ROV
The final tally from the manual recount for SJC Council in D8 is 17,230 votes for Sylvia Arenas and 17,162 for Jimmy Nguyen, a 68 votes difference. This is the third day of the voter-initiated recount and Jimmy is challenging 118 VBM ballots and is looking at duplicate ballots. He is paying about $1,600 a day for a limited recount since he did not have the funding to go full out.
The rule of the recount is that it has to be consecutive and if there is a break in the process, the recount is considered to be over.
