A recount has been scheduled to determine who won an at-large seat on the Southwest Community College Board of Governors.
Gage County says its recount will occur Wednesday morning. Votes must be recounted in all 15 counties of the college district's territory in eastern Nebraska.
Challenger Steve Ottmann, of Dorchester, was leading incumbent board member Jim Garver, of Lincoln, by a count of 63,062 to 62,710.
The difference was less than 1 percent of Ottmann's total, which requires a recount of all the votes unless the candidate in second place declines.
