(COLDWATER) – There were no changes following a recount of two Branch County elections that happened on Monday.

County Clerk Terry Kubasiak says the Branch County Board of Canvassers met to do a recount of the Coldwater City Council 4th Ward race between incumbent Scott Houtz and Dan Corwin and the Girard Township results regarding the Coldwater Community School's millage proposal.

Houtz defeated Corwin in the November 7th election 143-140. Corwin asked for a recount, claiming the new voting machines didn't count all of the ballots.

Kubasiak says the Board of Canvassers found the number of voters matched up with the number of ballots cast. The Board then hand counted the ballots and again came up with the same results.

With the victory Houtz will finish out the term of Heather Peet who had to step down in July 2016 after moving out of Coldwater. That term runs until 2019.

Kubasiak says in the Girard Township election, the number of voters and ballots also matched up. The results remained the same, with Township residents approving the millage request 155-153. Overall, the millage to build a new elementary school passed 1,867 to 1,747.
