Coos Rep Evalyn Merrick Loses Recount
A recount of the votes cast in Coos District 7 hasn’t changed the winner: Republican Leon Rideout defeated Democrat Evalyn Merrick.
Both are from Lancaster.
Merrick requested a recount which was conducted Thursday by the Secretary of State.
Originally Merrick lost by 12 votes.
In the recount, however, that margin increased to 34 votes.
That left Rideout with 3,274 votes compared to 3,240 for Merrick.
