Voting recount underway in District One commission primary race

Posted: Updated:
A ballot recount has been requested after only five votes separate two candidates in the first district commission primary race.
 
County commission candidate Chuck Cowan of Gering says he asked for a recount on Thursday afternoon.

He says he trusts how the voting was handled election night, May 13th, but doesn't want to regret later in life not asking for a recount with such a close result.

As it stands Mark Reichert of Minatare has won the primary race. 

County Clerk Vera Dulaney says having close races aren't uncommon.
 
"We've had recounts before, it's something that can happen. I guess it goes to show that every vote does count and if people don't get out and vote then the situation like this or a tie vote even can happen," said Dulaney.
 
Dulaney says once the recount is complete both candidates will be notified again.
