Recounts will take place Thursday for two Plymouth Township Republican primary races, despite objections from the winners of both races, the Plymouth Observer reported.
According to the Observer, three members of the Wayne County Board of Canvassers decided Sept. 7 to proceed with the recounts, despite opposition from Plymouth Township Treasurer Ron Edwards, who beat challenged Ed Schulz by 400 votes, and Plymouth Township Clerk candidate Nancy Conzelman, who defeated incumbent Joe Bridgman by eight votes.
The time and location of the recounts has not yet been announced, the report indicated. Both candidates shortly after the Aug. 7 primary.
Edwards and Conzelman said Schulz and Bridgman failed to show evidence of fraud or mistakes as alleged in the candidates' recount petitions, the report said.
