      Delta and Dickinson County hold recount

      There will be two recounts, one state and one local, this coming Monday at Bay College West in Iron Mountain.

      The first recount will be in Dickinson and Delta Counties for the 108th district representative race on the Democratic ticket.

      Sharon Gray was declared the winner by 93 votes over Judy Nerat who is challenging the results. Delta County's recount for the race is set for Tuesday. Menominee is not being contested.

      The second race being recounted is for Dickinson County Prosecutor on the Republican ballot. Lisa Richards was declared the winner with 31 votes more than Julie LaCost who is requesting the recount.

      "That will be done at the same time because we are opening all the boxes and there are 5,000 ballots," says Dickinson County Clerk Dolly Cook. "I would think we'll be done sometime middle of the afternoon."

      The recount will involve the ballots being counted twice. It begins at 9 a.m. central time Monday in Iron Mountain.

      It's open to both the candidates and the public.
