GOSHEN — The county’s new hybrid voting machines may be put to the test for the first time after a hand recount was requested by a Goshen candidate who narrowly lost her race.

Democrat Jennifer Shell lost her bid for a seat on Goshen City Council by one vote on Nov. 5. Her Republican opponent, Matt Schrock, picked up one additional vote when valid provisional ballots were counted, bringing his lead in the District 3 race to 249-247.
