BELLEVILLE — The discovery recount for Dorothy Meyer, who ran to be re-elected as Belleville Ward 2 alderman, will be at 3 p.m. Monday.
Meyer lost by two votes, 316-314, to Janet Kay Schmidt. Meyer had 313 votes on election night and picked up one vote after the challenged and late ballots were counted.
The outcome of the discovery recount will not overturn official election results, St. Clair County Clerk Bob Delaney has said.
The purpose of the discovery recount is for candidates to see if they have any evidence to officially contest election results by filing for a court hearing with the St. Clair County Circuit Clerk.
