By this afternoon we should know who sits on the Bend City Council. A very close race for the Position seven seat is forcing a recount. Despite thousands of votes cast-only two votes separate the candidates: Scott Ramsay is beating Chuck Arnold by that thin margin. Deschutes County Clerk Nancy Blankenship says the recount will start around 9 a.m.  "The Election Boards will be coming in and they'll be hand counting all of the ballots within the city of Bend, and they do that by precinct,  so we'll do each of the precincts and verify the results for each precincts and then total those all together to see if the count remains the same or if there are any changes that have taken place." Blankenship says the candidates are allowed to observe the recount. She believes we'll know the final outcome of the race by early afternoon.
