Newcomer Adam Hertz won the Ward 2 City Council seat by a mere three votes over incumbent Pam Walzer, and that means an automatic recount must be conducted next week. I spoke with Missoula City-County Elections Supervisor Vicki Zeier about the issue on Wednesday afternoon. That interview is attached.

Zeier says after an official canvas of the provisional and military votes, a recount

will be held next Wednesday at 2 pm. Zeier says she has experienced at least three

recounts in Ward 2 in the past 18 years, more than any other ward.
