Recount costs Carrara House seat.
Union Leader. November 20, 2004.By WARREN HASTINGS, Concord Bureau

CONCORD ? In a recount, Democrat Claudia Chase of Francestown beat out Republican Dario A. Carrara of Greenfield by four votes in the New Hampshire House District 2 election, officials announced.

The original count had Carrara defeating Chase 1,555 to 1,523 votes. The recount recast 36 votes, and showed Chase to be the winner by a 1,523 to 1,519 margin over Carrara.

"There are a number of scenarios that could have caused that to happen, but we think that a number of straight ticket ballots being miscounted is the most likely answer," said Deputy Secretary of State David Scanlan.

The other winner emerging from the House District 2 race was incumbent Republican Jarvis Adams of Greenfield. His recounted total was 1,772 against an original count of 1,777 votes.

In the District 20 House race it was Democrat Ruth Ginsburg of Nashua, Democrat Anthony Matarazzo, Nashua, and Republican Eugene Kelly, Nashua, holding onto their wins. Ginsburg's recounted total was 2,415 against an original count of 2,437. Matarazzo had a recounted total of 2,373 against an original count of 2,366 votes. Kelly's recounted total was 2,250 against an original count of 2,244.

Incumbent Republican Henry W. McElroy Jr., was edged out of the race with a recounted total of 2,204 against an original total of 2,197 votes.
