The recount board met this morning at the Winneshiek County Courthouse and conducted the recount of the ballots cast in the May 1st Decorah Referendum on the Municipal Electric Utility.  The final results are:


Yes – 1382

No – 1385


The recount board found the 2 ballots originally recorded as an “undervote” and an “overvote” and determined the voters’ intent to be yes on both of those ballots.  Thereby increasing the yes vote by 2 from the canvass held at Monday’s Board of Supervisors meeting.
