FINDLAY — A recount will be conducted this morning to determine the winner of Findlay's 5th ward City Council seat.
Unofficial results from election night showed Republican James Paul with 628 votes and a one-vote lead over Democrat Michael Eier. On Wednesday, the Hancock County Board of Elections added the walk-in votes and certified the results, giving Mr. Paul 635 votes to Mr. Eier's 629.
Since the margin is less than one-half of 1 percent, a recount is required.
