Hand recount in the race for Michigan’s 20th Senate seat starts today
Officials in Kalamazoo County will begin counting nearly 82,000 ballots by hand Monday morning.
Democrat Sean McCann lost his bid for state Senate by 59 votes – less than one-tenth of one percentage point.
Besides it being a tight race, McCann also heard of several problems on Election Day, like ballot tabulator machines getting jammed.
McCann will pay for the recount. It’ll take at least a couple days to complete.
