The Ledyard count....

Ledyard officials are preparing to begin their recount of the 2nd Congressional District race at the old Gales Ferry School on Route 12. Ledyard has two voting districts. As has been the case in other recounts, verifying the machine counts shoujld move quickly, with the greatest amount of time spent doing the hand count of the absentee ballots. There are reportedly over 200 of the paper ballots to count.

The latest update on the count now has Democratic challeger Joe Courtney leading three-term Republican incumbent Rob Simmons by 90 votes. Courtney's edge increased by three after Glastonbury officials re-adjusted their recount figures that initally showed Courtney losing five to Simmons. The re-adjusted count now has Courtney only losing two.
