Flint City Councilman Contesting Recount Request

WCRZ

Newly elected Flint City Councilman Eric Mays is objecting to a recount request in his race for First Ward Councilman. Mays beat Anita Brown by seven votes in the November 5th election. She petitioned for a recount the next day.

According to MLive, in her request for a recount, Brown alleged that there were “underhanded activities” at polling spots and believes “it’s only fair that a recount is conducted.” Mays filed his objection on Monday, November 18th and believes Browns accusations are more in line with a lawsuit saying “these are…circuit court type allegations” and not recount stuff.

Election officials have not said when the next Genesee County Board of Canvassers will meet to hear Mays’ objection and determine whether it is warranted. They have five days to rule on the objection and if they rule against Mays’ request to block a recount, a recount would take place on the second day following the board’s decision in attendance with state law.
