Salem, Ore. – Marion County’s recount of ballots in the Ward 4 Salem City Council race verified the original count in the narrow race between Dynee Medlock and Deanna Gwyn. A runoff vote in the November 8 general election is planned.

Just six votes separate the two candidates, not enough to provide the 50 percent-plus-one-vote margin needed to win. Medlock received 2,554 votes to Gwyn’s 2,548 with 13 write-in votes.

Ward 4 covers the south-central area of Salem.
