Peterborough is holding a recount after one Planning Board candidate won by just one vote in last week’s election.

Although Stephanie Hurley easily won the first of two open three-year positions on the Planning Board with 808 votes, incumbent Sarah Steinberg Heller won the second seat with 502 votes: just one more vote than runner-up Blair Weiss’s 501. Weiss requested the recount late last week after the town’s May 11 vote, Town Clerk Linda Guyette said.

The recount will cover votes for all six candidates for the two three-year positions, Guyette said: Hurley, Steinberg Heller, and Weiss, along with Lisa Stone, Christopher DiLoreto, and Lindsay Dreyer, who received 407, 317, and 350 votes, respectively.

The recount is scheduled to take place in the upper hall of the Peterborough Town House at 3 p.m. this Thursday, Guyette said. Members of the public and candidates can observe the process.
