A former Box Elder mayor who lost a city council race by one vote has also lost the recount.
Art Dial had said that if they misread one vote, it changes the election.
City spokeswoman Tanya Shepersky tells says the recount on Friday requested by Dial affirmed the original vote total and Carolyn Haddenham's narrow victory.
Earlier this month, Dial lost a Ward 1 City Council race by one vote to Haddenham, 58 votes to 57.
In April 2012, Dial lost his mayoral re-election to current Mayor Bill Griffths by seven votes after the general election and a recount.
