Recount changes primary results for Nashua state rep seat
On Monday, the Secretary of State’s Office performed a recount for the state representative race in Nashua’s Ward 8, at the request of Mangipudi, who originally lost by three votes to Democratic opponent Carl Andrade.
The new tally was Mangipudi, 191, and Andrade, 146. The original count was Mangipudi, 167, and Andrade, 170.
There will be no inquiry into the matter, and Andrade did not express any interest in contesting the newest figures, according to Scanlan.
The ballots were hand-counted last week at the Ward 8 polling site since it was a special primary election and the single race was the only item on the ballot.
Mangipudi, a former member of the Board of Education in Nashua, was not immediately available for comment on Monday. During last week’s election, she told the New Hampshire Union Leader that she was dedicated to winning the vacant House seat.

The House seat that will be filled by either Silva or Mangipudi was left vacant in February when Roland LaPlante resigned because of health email@example.com
