3 Vote margin in Palm Beach mayoral race

A hand recount necessary to certify a winner in Tuesday's mayoral election will take place Saturday and be open to the public, Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher said. Only 3 votes currently separate Jack McDonald and Gerry Goldsmith. There were 388 absentee ballots and 14 provisionals, all of which were counted into Tuesday's totals. The provisional ballots were cast mostly in cases where the voter forgot to bring identification to the polls, Susan Bucher, supervisor of elections, told the paper. This will be Bucher’s first recount.
