The Summit County Clerk’s Office on Saturday morning conducted a recount of the Park City Council primary election votes, confirming the results of the Aug. 13 balloting and maintaining Daniel Lewis’ two-vote margin for the sixth and final spot on the November ballot. 

None of the seven candidates’ vote totals changed as a result of the recount. Lewis received 193 votes for the sixth slot on the November ballot, while Chadwick Fairbanks III tallied 191. Fairbanks on Friday requested the recount based on the narrow margin separating him and Lewis. The margin fell within state guidelines allowing a recount. 

Summit County Clerk Kent Jones conducted the recount at the County Courthouse in Coalville, explaining the process as the ballots were tallied again. Fairbanks was in attendance, but Lewis was not. Assistant Park City Manager Matt Dias and Minda Stockdale, who is the deputy Park City recorder, also observed.
