TALLMADGE – Two candidates for Ward 3 Council seat are waiting for a recount to determine the winner.

Ward 3 incumbent Mary Tricaso and challenger Jonathan D. Bollas were separated by a single vote as of Tuesday.

Initially Tricaso was up by three votes but that was before the votes from the Portage County Board of Elections was added to the Summit County Board of Elections' ballots. The lone precinct in the neighboring county gave Tricaso the lead by one vote but that has flipped after updates.

The final but unofficial results from Summit County Board of Elections as of Tuesday showed Bollas with 488 votes to Tricaso’s 483. The vote counts from Portage County were 16 for Tricaso and 12 for Bollas, totaling 499 for Tricaso and 500 for Bollas. 

The Summit County recount is scheduled for Dec. 3 and results should be available that day. Portage County has not been authorized yet to do a recount.
