ESCANABA — Officials in Delta County have set a date for a recount regarding the Bay College Board of Trustees race that was on ballots last month.

Thomas England filed a petition of recount with the county. England lost a seat on the board of trustees by 12 votes.

The recount will take place on Tuesday, December 20th at the Escanaba City Hall Council Chambers. Delta County Clerk and Register of Deeds Nancy Kolich believes recounting ballots from all 27 precincts will take approximately five hours.

The Board of Canvassers will make a decision on the matter after all the precincts have been recounted.
