Sylvan Twp: Recount

The Chelsea Standard reports that a recount will take place for the Aug. 7, 2012 Sylvan Township ballot question regarding a millage proposal for debt repayment on water and sewer bonds. A recount had been requested following the narrow passage of the millage – 480 yes votes (50.37%) compared to 473 (49.63%) no votes. But during the recount on Sept. 4, the county board of canvassers determined that the ballot seal had not been appropriate and the recount didn’t proceed. On Oct. 3, judge Archie Brown of the 22nd circuit court ruled that a recount could move forward within 21 days. [Source]
