It originally ended in a 617 yes to 617 no tie vote. Thursday’s recount resulted in 617 yes to 618 no. The proposal is defeated.

A recount was also held for the Fairbanks Township Supervisor race. On November 6 Ron Collins received 101 votes and Dan Dalgord received 97 votes. Thursday’s recount confirmed those numbers.
