Incumbent Raline Smith-Reid is slated to be the Democratic candidate for Morristown's Ward 2 council seat this November.
That determination came Wednesday morning, after a recount of votes in the Democratic primary. Smith-Reid received 196 votes (52.83 percent of the vote), vs. Toshiba Foster's 175 (47.17 percent of the vote).
"We opened up the machine, and there was absolutely no change whatsoever," Morris County Clerk Joan Bramhall said. "She won the race by 21."
Smith-Reid is set to face Republican Naveen Nadipuram in the fall.
State Superior Court Assignment Judge Thomas Weisenbeck had approved a recheck of the voting machines, absentee and provisional ballots for the Ward 2 race.
However, Daily Record reports consultants of Foster's plan to further challenge the results, saying 40 voters who cast ballots don't actually live in Morristown. Neither candidate could be reached immediately Wednesday morning.
