Do we need a manual recount?

It took three tries for my ballot to go through the scanner at Foxdale last Tuesday night.

I waited there. The poll workers at Foxdale are great, and frankly I was happy to see a few voters at the polling place.

The turnout was steady there, but there were problems with the scanner, as evidenced by my ballot and others before mine.

Here's today's story on the debate at the election board about this and other problems, and linked to it is a poll asking whether you think there should be a manual recount.

I'm curious about what you say. Very few votes determined the final Democratic commissioners spot on the fall ballot, and a recount on that side at least might be in order.

What do you think?
