November 15, 2013
By Joyce Wiese - News Correspondent , Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

Tama County Auditor and Commissioner of Elections Laura Kopsa requested an administrative recount of the Elberon City Election ballots held on Nov. 5, for the offices of mayor, city council, and a city council post to fill a vacancy.

The recount was requested because of a discrepancy between the poll workers tally sheet and the election machine's results for write ins.

These and others elected by ballot or write-in were confirmed by a canvass on Tuesday afternoon by the Tama County Board of Supervisors.
