One vote really can make a difference…
According to a release by school officials, a recount Monday morning showed that the Millcreek-West Unity Local Schools safety and security levy failed by a single vote. The final vote count came in at 355 for and 356 against the levy.
The school district was seeking a 0.9-mill tax levy to fund the position of school resource officer.
On election day, the unofficial tally was 355 votes for and 351 against. The difference came from the addition of absentee and provisional ballots counted afterward. The automatic recount came up with the same results too.
