The recount for the District 1 Victoria City Council election is reset for 4 p.m. Thursday at the county elections office, Mayor Will Armstrong announced Tuesday.

The recount is not open to the public, but the two candidates in that election, Emett Alvarez and Denise Rangel, are allowed two representatives to oversee the recount.

The recount will include all eight voting precincts in that district, early voting, mail-in ballots and electronic ballots.

County Elections Administrator George Matthews was named chairman of the recount committee, Armstrong said.

City Secretary Scarlet Swoboda was previously named to that position, he said.
