D-Y Regional School District December Election Recount
The Town of Dennis will be conducting a recount today of the votes in the December 4th D-Y Regional School District election.
The question on the ballot asked residents to vote on a proposal to build a 117-million dollar Regional Middle School to be located in Yarmouth.
The proposal passed, but just barely.
The final numbers showed Dennis voters saying “yes” with 1, 371 votes to 876 voting “no”. In Yarmouth the results went the other way with 1,995 votes “no” to 1, 502 “yes”.
Between the two towns the proposal passed by only 32 votes and a recount was ordered.
The Dennis recount takes place at 10 A.M. in the Dennis Police Station.
The election recount in Yarmouth will take place Friday, at 10 A.M. in the Hearing Room at Yarmouth Town Hall.
The purpose of the recounts is to ascertain the will and intention of the voters.
