Total recount

Small changes can make a big difference. That at least, seems to be a serious possibility based on the first results of the total recount the Central Voting Bureau began yesterday.

With just one vote separating the number five and six on the UP-list, and one vote already found to even the score, the final result will decide who is going to take that seat – Tamara Leonard or Jules James.

If one of the top four vote getters becomes a minister this becomes obviously a moot point; in that case both candidates will take their seat at the end of the month.

The Central Voting Bureau has however taken a just decision with its move to a total recount. Votes matter, because a single one could lead to a dramatically different outcome for individual candidates.
