According to those results, Pyle leads Hodge by only 35 votes.
“The canvass process for the June 5, 2012 Primary Election began this morning at 9: 30 a.m.,” Bustamante wrote in a Thursday morning press release. “The canvass consists of four individuals who will verify that all ballots are accounted for and properly processed throughout Lassen County. By law they are also required to hand count 1 percent of the votes for every race on the ballot.Because the race for Supervisor District 1 is so close, I am going to have the canvass board hand count the entire district.”
Bustamante said she expects the canvass of the election will be completed by Friday, June 7.
