Recounts confirm election results in House races

Print More

None of the nine recounts in Vermont House races have produced a new winner. Republicans and Democrats have kept a close eye on the re-counts because their outcomes could have changed the precarious balance of power in the House. Republicans hold 74 seats – two seats short of a majority. Democrats have 69, Progressives won four and independents have three.

The recounts settled disputed election outcomes in Addison, Caledonia, Chittenden, Franklin, Grand Isle, Lamoille, Orleans and Windsor county House districts. None of those races saw its outcome reversed.
