A mandatory recount took place Friday morning at Whitman County Election’s Office. The race for Rosalia’s City Council, Position 2 between Rick Lau and Robert H. Hill was separated by one vote with Lau in the lead.
Election supervisor, Debbie Hooper, says the recount presented the same results out of the 223 total votes.
- Rick Lau: 112
- Robert H. Hill: 111
The recount was done by hand instead of the mandatory machine requirement. Hooper says it was just easier to do it that way.
Hill has served on the City Council since 1995.
