News Nearby: Beaudreau Requesting Vote Recount
The District 3 Gwinnett County Commissioner is seeking a recount after falling 56 votes short in his re-election bid against opponent Tommy Hunter.
Current Gwinnett County Commissioner Mike Beaudreau is seeking a recount following a close runoff election earlier this month. Gwinnett County's Communication Director Joe Sorenson has confirmed this news in an email to Patch.
The Gwinnett County Republican Party first announced on its Facebook page Monday that Beaudreau is requesting the recount. Beaudreau currently is tailing opponent Tommy Hunter in last Tuesday's runoff election by just 56 votes.
The Gwinnett GOP says the recount will begin Tuesday, August 28th at 4 p.m. at Elections Headquarters in Lawrenceville. Sorenson expects the recount to be complete by the early evening.
