Cass County Sheriff’s Race Heads To Recount

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010 at 12:30 pm

A recount is expected to get under way Wednesday (Nov. 10)  in the Cass County Sheriff’s race.

The Cass County canvassing board tells WCCO that sheriff’s Chief Deputy Tom Burch leads Walker Police Chief Wayne Tennis by just 47 votes.

Tennis requested the recount this week, saying there’s always the possibility of an error in the original vote count.

The Brainerd Daily Dispatch says the race falls within the half of 1 percent margin under state law to be eligible for a recount at no cost to the losing candidate.
