Frederick County Council President Keegan-Ayer Requests Recount

She lost by a tiny margin in the Democratic Primary in Council District Three.

Frederick, Md. (KM) – A recount will be taking place in one of the primary contests in Frederick County.

Council President MC Keegan-Ayer has formally requested a recount in the July 19th Democratic Primary in District Three where she lost by three votes to Jazmin Di Cola.

Most candidates who request a recount must post a bond to pay for it. But because the margin of victory is so tiny, Keegan-Ayer will not have to post a bond. The county will cover the costs of the recount.

Election Director Barbara Wagner says Council President Keegan-Ayer has requested a hand count of the ballots. The counting itself is expected to begin next Thursday, August 11th, Wagner asys.
