Racine Unified's $1 billion referendum passes by 5 votes; recount not automatic

From The Journal Times.com:

RACINE — Racine Unified voters approved the district’s $1 billion referendum question by an incredibly narrow five votes — 16,748 to 16,743 — in last week’s election.
While the election results are close, a recount is not automatic.
An individual who voted in the referendum election would need to request a recount of the referendum results, according to a Wisconsin Election Commission's manual. The voter would need to file a petition within three days of the board of canvass meeting. 
The filing officer for a school board office or referendum is the school district clerk.

Trump claims ‘total’ authority, over govs, to reopen economy

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump claimed the “total” authority Monday to decide how and when to reopen the economy after weeks of tough social distancing guidelines aimed at fighting the new coronavirus. But governors from both parties were quick to push back, noting they have primary responsibility for ensuring public safety in their states and would decide when it’s safe to begin a return to normal operations.

A number of local races were won or lost by just a few votes. This demonstrates the importance of voting. This last vote was a mess. I think it should be tossed out and another vote taken after the coronavirus danger passes.
