Vermont Progressive Primary Results Likely Delayed
An official leading the recount in the gubernatorial primary for Vermont's Progressive party says it's doubtful the recount will be completed before Friday.
The recount was being conducted Thursday at county courthouses around Vermont, with results being reported to the Washington County clerk, Elizabeth Battey.
Battey says clerks around Vermont are having to separate out Progressive ballots from Democratic and Republican ones to determine who got the most votes from the fewer than 800 people who voted for a candidate in the Progressive Primary.
Write-in candidate Annette Smith asked for the recount after losing in earlier counting to Progressive Party Chairwoman Martha Abbott by one vote. The party decided earlier this year not to run a candidate for governor, so Abbott withdrew after her apparent victory.
