Jersey senatorial vote recount under way
A recount is being carried out into the results of a disputed Senatorial election in Jersey.
Sarah Ferguson asked for the recount after coming ninth in the race for eight senatorial seats; some 262 votes behind Philip Ozouf, the final successful candidate.
Of 146,247 votes cast, she polled 9,800 ballots to Mr Ozouf's 10,062.
Parish officials, volunteers and election candidates are at the Town Hall while the results are rechecked.
Eight senators, 12 constables and 29 deputies were elected to the States assembly on 15 October.
Under Jersey's election laws, a recount can be ordered if the difference between candidates is less than 1% of the total votes.
