Close Vote Re-count – Thursday, November 9, 2023 at 5:00 p.m.
The re-count is scheduled to take place Thursday, 11/09/2023 at the Town Office Building in the lower-level conference room at 5 pm.
Close Vote (CGS § 9-311a)
The head moderator must call for a recanvass when the difference in the number of votes received by the two highest vote-getters is (1) less than 0.5% of the total number of votes cast for the office, but no more than 2,000 votes for an election (or 1,000 votes for a primary), or (2) less than 20.
In a recanvass for a multiple-opening office (e.g., Board of Education), officials must recanvass the returns for all candidates for all openings for the office. In the case of a multiple-opening office, “the total number of votes cast for the office” means the total number of voters checked as having voted in the district, municipality, or political subdivision, as the case may be. A recanvass is not held if the defeated candidate or candidates file a written statement with the town clerk waiving the right.
Based on the information above, please note that all votes for the three close vote offices will be recounted.
Those offices are:
- Board of Selectmen
- Hebron Board of Education
- Zoning Board of Appeals
