The mandatory manual recount matched the earlier certified count. A three-person counting board hand tallied ballots in each of Rainier’s two precincts. Those totals were checked against machine counts by a two-person verification board. Observers attended to watch the process in person.
A manual recount occurs if the vote difference is less than 150 and less than ¼ of 1%. The total vote difference between the candidates was 1 and the percentage difference was .2%
