Recount Continues In Montgomery County

(Germantown, MD) — The slow and tedious process of recounting the ballots in the Montgomery County Primary for County Executive continues. While a slim majority separates Incumbent Democrat Marc Elrich from his Democratic challenger David Blair, the process started over the weekend at the Germantown Community Center gym. The first day of the recount turned up a possible mistake which is expected to slow the recount down. Elrich’s 42 vote lead has been narrowed to 35 votes in the recount. The weekend problem centers on placing counted ballots in an incorrect pile of ballots. Election officials say they do not believe the incident was intentional.
