Recount to be held for Unit 4 School Board race

By Alissa Groeninger

Champaign County Clerk Mark Shelden has announced that a recount will be held for the Champaign School District’s School Board election.

Lynn Stuckey, who was one of seven candidates competing for three spots on the board, finished fourth, leaving her one spot away from being a member of the board.

“By statute, Ms. Stuckey has the right to request that a discovery recount of 13 of the 52 precincts in the Champaign Unit 4 School District,” Shelden said in a press release. “While we are confident that the voting equipment used in Champaign County produces true and accurate results, this process allows us to confirm our beliefs.”

The recount is being held Friday May 1 at 8:30 a.m.
