Recount of school board seats in Kent County after paperwork error

A recount will occur in Kent County after a paperwork error in two schoolboard races.

Kent County Clerk Lisa Posthumus Lyons says one of her staff members noticed names were mistakenly flipped on a certification document for a Kellogsville Public School Board seat as well as a Grand Rapids Public School Board seat.

She says the vote totals were correct and only the names were impacted.

Posthumus Lyons says a recount will occur to ensure the public has confidence in the election outcomes.

The recount is expected to take two weeks to complete.
