Flint City Council candidate Anita Brown wants a recount after losing her race to represent the First Ward by just seven votes.

According to MLive, Eric Mays received 709 votes to Brown’s 702 votes. Brown says she is requesting the recount “because of the race being so close and because of how long it took for results to come in.” She added “people get tired. They might have missed something.”

Brown must submit an official request in writing with the Genesee County Elections office. She has until 4 p.m. on Wednesday, November 13th following the Genesee County Board of Canvassers’ certification of the election yesterday.
