County of Orange Registrar of Voters Neal Kelley posted in a Facebook update this evening that the Los Alamitos City Council recount has been cancelled. From Neal Kelley’s Facebook page:
December 13, 2010 – A few moments ago I received notification from candidate Dean Zarkos (who originally requested the City of Los Alamitos city council contest recount) to end the recount process.
During the recount today we recounted nearly 50% of all ballots cast in the contest. Many candidates, their volunteers (and in some cases attorneys) were present for the recount. Â As a result of the cancellation there will be no further recounting of ballots in the City of Los Alamitos race. The original election certification results stand and there will be no change in the vote totals.
The City of Fullerton city council recount will continue tomorrow at 9:00 a.m. Full details on both recounts can be found at ocvote.com/recount.
