2013 Cambridge City Council Election Recount Scheduled

Nov 27 – The Cambridge Election Commission yesterday announced the dates, times, and location for the Recount of the 2013 City Council election. It will take place at the Moore Youth Center, 12 Gilmore Street, in the Riverside neighborhood. (Parking is expected to be a challenge.) Though nobody yet knows how long the Recount will actually take, the Election Commission has reserved the space for a two week period beginning Monday, Dec 2 at 8:30am.

The space is reserved for Mon, Dec 2 through Sat, Dec 7; and Mon, Dec 9 (followed by a break on Tues, Dec 10 for the Congressional election to fill the Markey seat); and Wed, Dec 11 through Sat, Dec 14. All meetings begin at 8:30am at the Moore Youth Center.


Looking Back at the 2001 School Committee Recount

There have been municipal election recounts before, but nothing really compares to the marathon 2001 School Committee Recount that took place in the former space of the Election Commission on Green Street (above the old Police Station). Here are a few images from that marathon – just to whet your appetite for the 2013 City Council Recount scheduled to begin Dec 2, 2013.

  1. Glad they had this recount. I gained four #1 votes if I remember correctly.
    Almost beat the Fat Elvis stamp’s totals.

  2. I do remember the recount – very early on in my involvement with Cambridge politics. it was intense, fun, nerve-wracking all in one. …. and looking at the pictures, it is evidence that the players were younger… and Nancy and Susana are so wonderfully photogenic (esp. compared to me – then and now). Thanks for the memories, Robert.

  3. Looking at these pictures, may I also add, because I’m still astonished we lost him far too soon: I miss Rusty.
