(JASPER) - A recount is being sought in the tied election for mayor in the southern Indiana city of Jasper.

Republican Mayor Terry Seitz filed the request for a review of the November 3 election tallies showing him and Democratic challenger Wayne Schuetter both with 1,856 votes. Independent candidate Josh Budd received 190 votes.

The mayor's attorney, David Brooks, tells The Jasper Herald that he expects the recount process will show whether any mistakes were made in the vote counting.

State law requires the recount be completed by December 20. If the results remain tied, the City Council would vote by December 31 on whether Seitz or Schuetter becomes mayor of the 15,000-person community.
