Recount update

This just in from Spokane County Elections HQ:

As of 2 p.m., elections workers, under the watchful eyes of partisan observers, have counted 36,575 ballots from 41 precincts.

There has been no change in the totals for John Driscoll or John Ahern.

There is one precinct that has one more ballot than the official count says it should have, and one precinct that has one less ballot. County Auditor Vicky Dalton said the staff suspects that the extra ballot in the former precinct belongs in the latter precinct. But election workers will have to examine all ballots in the plus-1 precinct to find the extra one.
