With the defeat of Article 3, will the Town still apply for the $650,000 grant to be used to offset the impact to the Town of the Mall?

There is no "apply" to do
teh $650,000 is sitting in the towns bank account
and can ONLY be used for fire infrastructure
so until we build a new station or rehab ( yuck) the existing
it will continue to sit there

Top search 'merrimack votes' (33% who hit the site via a search engine).

one minor change - fees
if the difference in votes is < 1% the fee is $10
<2% - $20
<3% - 40
>3% - cost of the recount
if the results turn out to less than 1% the fee is refunded

the simple $10 was -old law

If I understand this correctly, then the SB recount requester will be charged $40 because the difference in the votes (76) is slightly over 2%. Is that right? Also, is the percentage based on the total votes cast or just the total votes cast on the particular issue/seat being recounted? (in the SB recount example, it wouldn't make a difference as both are over 2% but less than 3%)

Thanks for the education Lynn and Brian

that will depend on a few factors
like how many votes need to be counted and what type of votes
it take longer to count a 4 person race than a 2 person or yes/no race
it usually takes a few hours to count this many ballots including transport,
setup, and repacking time.
and 8 +/- counters plus officials and police

Hmm, I thought I got that from the State website... I did not dive into the 'current changes' page though ;-)

Brian, is it your plan to update merrimackvotes.com this election season? If so, when do you plan to begin adding the 2012 info?
