Cass County sheriff recount starts Wednesday in Walker


The recount is officially on. Walker Police Chief Wayne Tennis Monday submitted a written request for a recount in the Cass County sheriff's race after the county's canvassing board declared as official the 47-point margin held by Chief Deputy Tom Burch.

Tennis said Tuesday there's always a margin for error and when candidates work hard for an elective office it's important the results are accurate.

Burch said he is hopeful the vote totals stand.
