The levy still passed with a final vote of 28,855 votes, or 50.2 percent, in favor of the measure, according to Lorain County Board of Elections Director Paul Adams. The 28,615 votes, or 49.8 percent, against the levy also didn’t change.
The recount, approved Wednesday, was triggered automatically because of the closeness of the results. In the end only 240 votes put the 1.5-mill renewal levy with a 0.6-mill increase over the top.
The levy will bring in $12 million annually for expanding faculty, technology and programming in LCCC’s University Partnership.
Adams also said the results of the Black River school board race, which also were subject to a mandatory recount in Ashland, Lorain and Medina counties didn’t change.
