Danville recount in Holmes

Danville recount in Holmes

The Ohio secretary of state has ordered an automatic recount of the votes cast in the general election held Nov. 8 for the Danville Local School District additional permanent improvement levy.

The results of the official canvass for the district were as follows: for the tax levy, 600 (49.875%); against the tax levy, 603 (50.125%).

Because the margin of the votes cast for and against the levy is less than one-half of 1%, a recount has been ordered pursuant to ORC 3515.011.

The Holmes County Board of Elections has scheduled the recount of Holmes County votes to commence on Monday, Dec. 5 at 9 a.m. The recount will take place in the board of elections office at 75 E. Clinton St., Suite 108, Millersburg.

A small portion of the Danville School District is in Holmes County.
