HERMON, Maine — A one-vote difference between two candidates in Tuesday’s Town Council race has prompted a request for a recount.

The recount, set for 6 p.m. Monday in the council chambers, is being conducted at the request of incumbent Anne Freeman, who was one of three candidates for two council positions, according to Town Clerk Eric Gliddin and Town Manager Clinton Deschene.

A public notice for the session will be posted on the town website and in the usual community locations, they said.

The initial ballot count from Tuesday’s elections indicated that the winners were Anthony Reynolds, who received 367 votes, and Donald Pelletier, who received 319.

Freeman, however, was only one vote behind. Given that, she submitted a written request for a recount Tuesday afternoon.
