The Mankato school district referendum narrowly passed this week, and the Minnesota Secretary of State's office says that as of now, a recount isn't necessary.
According to Minnesota statute in a case of a school district with between 400 and 50,000 voters, the threshold for a government paid recount would be one-half of one percent.
Tuesday's unofficial results submitted to the Secretary's office saw the question pass by .6 percent, a 29 vote margin.
The office says if vote totals change during the canvassing process, the margin may fall below the half percent threshold.
The school district will hold a special meeting at 7:30 a.m., Tuesday November 14 to canvass the election results.
